We all know that physical activity is a necessary and important part of daily life. Unfortunately, injuries – musculoskeletal injuries in particular – are incurred by people during physical activity in sport, leisure and work. An Athletic Therapist and Trainer (ATT) is an important member of the overall health care profession who specialises in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries across all ages, standards of sporting ability and population types (including for example, people with a disability). We want you to qualify with excellent medical knowledge, clinical skills, communication skills, confidence, problem solving skills and extensive practical experience. Importantly, you should also develop a profound respect for patients and a highly professional approach when dealing with them.
