The Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology prepares you for a career as an exercise physiologist. Exercise physiologists prescribe and deliver exercise-based lifestyle and behaviour modification programs to prevent and treat injury and disease.
This program is accredited by Exercise and Sports Science Australia. Graduates are eligible to apply to be recognised as Accredited Exercise Physiologists and Accredited Exercise Scientists.
The Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology consists of 72 units.
You will undertake topics in interprofessional practice, chronic disease management and private practice, exercise management in priority conditions, advanced exercise prescription and musculoskeletal injury management, and clinical exercise assessment and prescription, as well as clinical placements.
You will undertake a compulsory 360 hours in clinical exercise physiology placement. Clinical placements can be taken at various metropolitan or rural and remote locations, including the Northern Territory.

These requirements are subject to change.
Applicants will have normally completed a bachelor degree in the field of sport and/or exercise science (or a related degree) that is accredited, or be a current member or eligible for membership with Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) as an exercise scientist. Applicants will have completed 140 hours of practicum experience with apparently healthy individuals.
Applicants who hold a closely related non-ESSA accredited course may wish to apply for the 'Graduate Entry Assessment', once they can demonstrate they meet the ESSA Exercise Science Standards and 140 hours of approved practical experience, for membership as an Exercise Scientist. View more information about graduate entry assessment.
Applicants with an ESSA accredited degree will be asked to provide confirmation of the placement topics they completed in their degree to confirm they meet the placement requirements.
Applicants who hold a closely related non-ESSA accredited course and have demonstrated they have met the ESSA Exercise Science Standards through 140 hours of approved practical experience must provide to Flinders University, within ten working days of submitting their application, confirmation of their approved Graduate Entry Assessment.
