|Duration||1.5 years full-time or part-time equivalent|
|Deakin course code||H743|
The Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology is the first and only clinical exercise course in Victoria to achieve accreditation with Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA). The course provides graduates with a simple pathway to accreditation as Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEP) and access to Provider Numbers with Medicare Australia, WorkSafe Victoria, DVA, TAC, and other compensable funds and schemes. Although the course only commenced in 2011, it is already achieving outstanding levels of teaching excellence, clinical supervision, learning outcomes and employment in the sector. The teaching team has expertise across all of the pathology areas needed for clinical exercise practice. The clinical practicum program covers all of the requirements for AEP accreditation and features the award winning Clinical Exercise Learning Centre at the Melbourne Burwood Campus, where students develop their practice skills under close supervision and mentoring. Students then embark on a range of external clinical practicum experiences organised by the University, designed to optimise students’ exposure to a wide range of clientele, practitioners and institutions. Some of these placements lead directly to future employment. The course is an 18 month graduate-entry degree where you will develop your capacity to creatively and flexibly apply your knowledge and skills to new situations, and be able to think in a rigorous and independent manner.
The course aims to:
The Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743) is the first AEP course in Victoria to be accredited by Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA). Students are eligible to apply for accreditation as AEPs upon completion of the course, and are then eligible for Provider Numbers with Medicare Australia, WorkSafe Victoria, DVA, TAC, and other compensable funds and schemes.
This course provides you with the required knowledge and necessary skills, developed through theoretical and pre-clinical units to enable you to take full advantage of the three clinical placements on offer. The clinical placement program consists of a fully integrated internal and external placement system. The internal placements occur in the award winning Clinical Exercise Learning Centre (CELC), with supervision provided by expert AEPs. The external placements are in a wide variety of settings aligned to the scope of practice for clinical exercise physiologists and sometimes lead directly to future employment. All placements are organised by an academic staff member with responsibility for clinical placements, and will provide you with professional industry links, reinforce your understanding of the role of an AEP and give you extensive opportunities to gain practical knowledge, skills and competencies that will enable you to practise confidently in this field.
