Exercise, Sport and Rehabilitation Science Course Accredited

Curtin’s Exercise, Sport and Rehabilitation Science course has been accredited by the national accrediting body, Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA). This is a tremendous achievement for the School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science, which had its first intake of students into the course in 2012.

During the course development and accreditation process, a number of highly qualified staff members, with expertise across biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control and sports psychology, joined the school. In addition, state-of-the-art teaching labs in exercise physiology and strength, conditioning and rehabilitation were developed.

The school thanks all staff members, and acknowledges their significant contributions towards achieving accreditation. Particular thanks go to Associate Professor Kevin Netto and Associate Professor Andrew Maiorana, as course discipline leads, and Dr Andrew Lavender as Course Coordinator. Special thanks to Geoff Strauss, the initial Course Coordinator, and the original driver for the course to be established.
