RCCP accredited MSc Clinical Exercise Physiology programme
RCCP accredited Clinical Exercise Physiology MSc programmes must ensure that the graduates meet the RCCP Standards of Proficiency, that are in line with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) Standards of Proficiency, and the Clinical Exercise Physiologist Scope of Practice. The RCCP is not directly responsible for the curriculum or competencies as these are established by professional bodies. Therefore, the role of this curriculum framework is to provide information on the required knowledge and skills to be included and developed in taught programmes to be a competent Clinical Exercise Physiologist in the UK.
Clinical Exercise Physiology-UK (CEP-UK) have developed a curriculum framework for an MSc Clinical Exercise Physiology degree that forms part of the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP) degree accreditation.
Information contained within the curriculum framework was circulated for feedback (survey closed 22nd Feb 2022) and ammendments were made before releasing this finalised version. See a summary of the feedback below.
For information on applying for accreditation for your degree programme please see the RCCP website.
