Details of the programmes PAHRC members teach on and their PhD student supervision.
Programmes which members of PAHRC teach on
Undergraduate and postgraduate teaching forms an important part of capacity building within PAHRC as we teach and mentor future practitioners and researchers in physical activity for health.
MSc Physical Activity for Health
The MSc in Physical Activity for Health is directed by PAHRC members and links closely with our research. This graduate programme is designed to tackle the physical inactivity pandemic, enhancing knowledge and understanding of the global issues pertinent to physical activity for health.
BMedSci Physical Activity for Health
Our intercalated BMedSci in Physical Activity for Health allows medical students to study this critical aspect of global health. Overall this programme will allow future doctors to better understand the physical social and mental health impacts of physical activity, as well as exercise as medicine and prescription. Doctors trained in physical activity for health will make an important contribution to fighting physical inactivity, and the associated diseases. This course is ideal for medical students with a passion for lifestyle medicine, an interest in prevention as well as treatment, and those concerned with chronic diseases of the body and mind.
In Moray House School of Education and Sport, PAHRC members also currently teach on:
MA(Hons) Physical Education
Postgraduate research opportunities (PhD, MPhil, MRes)
Graduates with a relevant postgraduate qualification and an interest in undertaking postgraduate research in the area of physical activity for health are invited to contact the postgraduate office for further information.
Successful students will join the internationally recognised Physical Activity for Health Research Centre (PAHRC), led by Prof Nanette Mutrie.
