Prepare for a rewarding career. As recognised allied health professionals, accredited exercise physiologists are qualified in clinical exercise prescription and the delivery of exercise-based lifestyle and behaviour modification programs to prevent and treat injury and disease. With an ageing population and increasing awareness around the benefits of exercise for a range of conditions, demand in this field is on the rise.
The program will develop your understanding of how to use exercise management to prevent disease onset and treat a range of cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, neurologic, musculoskeletal and cancer conditions. You will enjoy practical training using state-of-the-art equipment in exercise physiology, biomechanics, motor control and strength and conditioning laboratories and complete clinical exercise delivery, including at the on-campus Exercise Physiology Clinic.

As an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP), Jasvir spends his days using exercise as a tool to reduce the risk of and manage clients with injuries, pain, chronic conditions and disability. It’s a hands-on job, with exposure to a wide range of people from kids with motor skill issues through to elderly clients looking to improve their quality of life.
“AEPs are in a strong position to not only empower clients to prevent some of these conditions but also to provide hope in how to manage their conditions better. AEPs have the ability to make a real difference to the community and our population as a whole.”
As the fastest growing allied health profession in Australia, it’s a particularly good time to study Clinical Exercise Physiology.
