    Master of Rehabilitation

    Doing the Master of Rehabilitation will help with career progression — especially in getting jobs I wouldn’t otherwise be able to get. You have to manage your time between work and study, but I think you’re more motivated as a learner because you’ve had situations where you can apply your experience and knowledge to.

    What inspired me to undertake Master of Rehabilitation at James Cook University is my passion for Interventional Cardiology and interest in Medical research. This course offered me the opportunity to explore the benefits of cardiopulmonary rehabilitation which is often required for patients with advanced heart disease.
