Congratulations on securing your place on the MSc in Sport Rehabilitation at St Marys University.
Over the next two years you will be studying a range of topics, and will have the opportunity to integrate and enhance your learning with a number of placement experiences.
In terms of preparing for the course before arrival, I would suggest that you review your anatomy, physiology and scientific/academic writing (eg Research Methods). A good understanding of these concepts will put you in a better position to be able to apply the knowledge you learn whilst studying here in a clinical fashion.
Whilst books are very useful (key recommendations below), for Master's level study I suggest you use journal articles as your main resource. This will enable you to explore the depths of the subject area in a level required for discussion in class. Useful text books include:
- Moore KL, Dalley AF, Agur AMR. (2013). Clinically Oriented Anatomy. 7th Edition. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins: Baltimore, MD.
- Prentice, W, Principles of Athletic Training. 10th- 16th Edition. McGRaw-Hill Education: New York NY
- Patton,K, Mosby’s Hanbook of Anatomy and & Physiology (Sections I, II, and III), Elsevier
