    About the course:
    Year One begins with anatomy and the basic sciences, giving you an understanding of the anatomy of the body and the pathophysiology of injury. You’ll also study the theory and practice that underpin physical conditioning to prevent and rehabilitate injury, and enhance health and performance.

    In Year Two, you’ll start to learn how to assess, treat and rehabilitate injuries and further develop the theory and practice of training. You’ll also undertake First Aid and Emergency Care to prepare you to provide pitch-side assistance in various sports. In addition, you’ll start the clinic modules that will continue each semester for the remainder of the course. These modules will provide you with clinical field experience, as well as allow you to assist in the student-led sports injury clinic based within the school.

    You’ll spend Year Three expanding your knowledge and learning in-depth principles of rehabilitation, therapeutic modalities and soft tissue therapies.

    In the first half of Year Four, you’ll gain three to five months of experience working full-time in a clinical setting in Ireland or abroad (including athletic therapy and training facilities in American universities). The latter half of the fourth year includes a major research project.
