MSc in Performing Arts Medicine

This is a unique collaboration between University College London, The British Association for Performing Arts Medicine, The Royal College of Music and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

The programme will introduce the key areas relating to musculoskeletal and neuromuscular injury, performance psychology, prescribed and self medicated pharmacology, hyper-mobility, dystonias, disability and special senses of the performing artist. There will also be considerable emphasis on the multi faceted aspects of pathology experienced by performers, thorough assessment clinics and in depth rehabilitation programming. As well as input from industry experts and those working at the cutting edge of performing arts research.

This course will equip clinicians with specialised knowledge and provide a baseline qualification which may eventually become a minimum requirement for health professionals working in this field.

Part of the Performing Arts Medicine MSc is based at the Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH).
