MSc. Sport and Exercise Medicine - Physiotherapy



This programme recognizes the calibre of athletes that our physiotherapists are asked to manage throughout the region. Historically most athletes sought all medical treatment outside the region, but this trend is changing with the introduction of Sports Medicine trained physicians. The rehabilitation of the athlete however has not been uniform throughout the region and the tendency to leave the region, or employ physiotherapists from outside of the region has been growing. This programme reaffirms the commitment of the UWI to meet the needs of the entire region. It further aids in the use of exercise in health promotion and the management of patients with chronic diseases seen in all of the countries.
