Opportunities to work in diverse sporting and clinical settings

'Military General Practice has exposed me to a high volume of musculoskeletal injuries and I wanted to be able to offer my patients a better service in the primary care setting in addition to developing my interest in the field. The MSc will offer me opportunities to work in more diverse sporting and clinical settings in the future.'

Highly recommended

'The MSc at Bath was highly recommended by previous alumni as accessible, challenging and fun, with the third year research project offering an opportunity to innovate and develop understanding further within an area of interest.'

A future in the military

'My future plans remain within the military, hopefully broadening my practice to include work within Regional Rehabilitation Units and MSK Injury Assessment Clinics (MIACs). I have particularly enjoyed collaborative elements of Sport and Exercise Medicine within the multidisciplinary team and would welcome opportunities to do more of this kind of work in the future.'

A collaborative MSc

'I have most enjoyed the collaborative elements of the MSc, getting to know other students and tutors and learning collectively, particularly on the residential Clinical Weeks. The assessments have certainly been challenging, and when I look back at those I have completed over the past 2 years, the amount of rigour and depth of learning involved is clear.'

'Having access to excellent tutors and communicators to bring obscure topics to life has been a particular highlight and offered a learning opportunity I could not have found on my own.'
