Clinical Placement Partnership with Deakin University 

Part of the accreditation process of becoming an Exercise Physiologist is to undertake 500 hours of clinical practicum placement in various fields of rehabilitation.
At The Next Step we have built a close relationship with Deakin University, to offer an invaluable opportunity to their Master of Exercise Physiology students to provide supervised hours to contribute towards accreditation.

The student placements here at The Next Step not only involve exposure to the spinal cord injury population, but also encourages our students to participate in exercise prescription, clinical notes and spinal cord injury research.

The placements allow the students to engage with and assist our recovery specialists with our athletes in a supported environment while participating in session planning, preparing clinical notes, being educated in risks and complications associated with spinal cord injury and in the final weeks of their placements are asked to plan and run a exercise physiology session with one of our incredible TNS athletes.
