Exercise Physiologist

Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiology looks at how exercise and behaviour change can help prevent and manage conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, depression, cancer, arthritis and many more.

Exercise physiologists find work in many fields, such as health promotion, occupational health and safety, workplace rehabilitation, injury prevention (occupational ergonomics), personal fitness, sports, strength and conditioning training. To become an exercise physiologist, you could enrol for the four-year Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise Physiology), or the Bachelor of Health Sciences followed by a graduate-entry Master of Exercise Physiology (five years).

Occupational therapist

Occupational therapist

An occupational therapist helps people who are unable (or have limited ability) to do normal daily activities due to illness, injury or circumstances. To do this, you will look at ‘the whole person’ – their physical, emotional, developmental and psychological capabilities, and then create a plan to help them return to an acceptable level of activity.

You can complete the Bachelor of Applied Science (Occupational Therapy) or a Bachelor of Health Science with a graduate-entry Master of Occupational Therapy to become accredited by the relevant industry bodies.
