Exercise Physiology

The Profession

Our graduates are allied health professionals who play a vital role in the prevention and management of chronic disease and injury. The Exercise Physiology industry continues to grow and services are now covered by Medicare and most private health insurance. Graduates are eligible to become Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) registered with the national accreditation body, Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA).

AEPs have rewarding careers in a number of clinical workplace environments. These may include public and private hospitals, private practice, aged care facilities, mental health clinics, community exercise and physical activity programs, and workplace health and rehabilitation.

AEPs are eligible to register with Medicare Australia, the Department of Veterans Affairs, State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA), SafeWork NSW, Care NSW (iCare) and a number of health insurers. AEPs are included within health professional awards similar to other mainstream health professionals.
