Physiology

What are my opportunities as a physiologist at the AIS?

All physiologists have undertaken university courses (initially an undergraduate science degree, then a postgraduate degree such as an honours, masters or PhD) in:

  • Exercise Science
  • Human Movement
  • Sport Science
  • Physical Education or a related field.

Increasingly, high school students are gaining an interest in Physiology through the physical education curriculum and we would encourage students to consider the STEM subjects to pursue a career along this pathway.

Before focusing special projects and advanced studies in third and fourth year on Exercise Physiology, student's initial stages of a university degree should include a broad range of subjects including:

  • Anatomy and Physiology;
  • Biomechanics;
  • Coaching Science;
  • Skill Acquisition;
  • Psychology;
  • Statistics;
  • Information Technology; and
  • the sociological aspects of sport.

Apart from an academic program, students should have a passion for sport, a burning curiosity about sports science and they should endeavour to obtain some practical experience in an Exercise Physiology laboratory or with elite sports team or an elite sport program.

AIS Physiology offers a limited number of placements on an annual basis to students who wish to gain industry experience, as detailed below:

  • Postgraduate Scholarship (Quality Assurance)
  • Postgraduate Scholarship (Physiology)
