Advanced Anatomy and Client Assessment (15 Credits)
This module aims to develop an advanced knowledge of and mastery in the student’s understanding of anatomy with particular focus on structure and function. The module will concentrate upon in depth knowledge of how structure affects the function of the musculoskeletal system and the advanced methods by which a health practitioner assesses both the injured and non injured person. Advanced skills in terms of assessment, clinical reasoning and professional conduct will be developed alongside the theoretical bases.Rehabilitation and Conditioning Techniques (15 Credits)

To critically review and evaluate current ‘schools of thought related to the patho-physiological processes involved in musculoskeletal injury and healing. Students will analyse and interpret current research evidence related to the management and treatment on injury. In addition students will advance their anatomical knowledge base by looking at an advanced level at the mechanism of injury and the resulting cause and effect on the musculoskeletal system.Professional Placement (30 Credits)
