Achievement of the award would allow you to work with any athlete from recreational through to elite level performers. It would also allow you to work within a sports medicine team, working beside other professionals, such as sports medicine doctors, physiotherapists, general and strength and conditioning coaches and nutritionists, or independently in a clinic-type environment.
