Staff Profile

Craig Pfeifer

I have more than 10 years of experience working as a clinician in sports medicine in the United States. I have worked with patients across a range of sectors, including youth sport, university athletes, professional athletes, and personnel in the industrial and performing arts sectors. Whatever your interests, you will be learning from professionals who have extensive experience with patient care. We use our expertise to guide your education and help develop your clinical knowledge and skills. You will develop foundational knowledge of evidence-based practice through review and critique of current research literature. The foundational knowledge is then integrated in to developing your practice through clinical placements.

Level 7

Level 7 Notes: For those students without the pre-requisite sports and exercise science modules, they will be required to undertake the bridging module Sports Science for Sports Therapists. This is an entry requirement and is non-credit bearing. This module does not count towards the award, and must be completed prior to starting the course. There is no PG Cert or PG Dip for sports therapy. If students wish to exit at either of these points, then they will gain a PG Cert or PG Dip in Sports Health Studies.

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
