BASRaT is the UK regulator for Sport Rehabilitation Graduates. The BASRaT register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
As the number of people participating in sport and exercise at all levels continues to increase, so too do the diverse demands on healthcare practitioners. Couple this with the nationwide drive to make Britain a healthier place and get people of all ages and physical conditions exercising; there is a definite need for exercise and rehabilitation professionals who can work alongside and complement the existing healthcare practitioners.
BASRaT graduates are trained solely in Sports and Exercise Medicine, with an emphasis on the design and implementation of exercise and rehabilitation programmes in both health and disease. St. Mary's University College and the University of Salford were the pioneering institutions to run degree programmes of this nature, and have since been joined by several other institutions. To ensure that all accredited courses were of a high equitable standard, and that all graduates conformed to strict codes of professional practice and conduct, the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers was born.
