About Musculoskeletal Ageing and Health at University of Birmingham

The course is aimed at life science graduates interested in gaining an in depth understanding of the ageing process and how it specifically affects musculoskeletal function and health. It is suitable for those considering a research career as this Masters programme has a significant research component and the course is taught exclusively by active researchers in a national centre of excellence. Designed also to appeal to allied health professionals, such as physiotherapists, dieticians and those working with the elderly in a clinical context, the part-time study and mentored practice options are specifically in place to support such students. Supplying students with an in depth understanding of musculoskeletal ageing, equipping them with practical skills to assess and research the topic and learning practical approaches to minimise the impact of ageing on this major body system are the aims of this course.

This course explores the biological basis of age-related musculoskeletal decline and associated pathologies, including factors influencing the decline and interventions to maintain good musculoskeletal health as we age. With rapidly changing demographics, falling birth rate and increasing life expectancy, we are an ageing population. However, healthy lifespan is not keeping pace with increased longevity and people are living longer but not necessarily in good health.
