The Rehabilitation Coordinator is tasked with being a first point of contact for students (and their parents/carers) who have sustained a musculoskeletal injury.  The Rehabilitation Coordinator then fills a variety of roles, the most important of which is to be the central communicator between stakeholders as well as working with the MSA physiotherapist and where appropriate, external stakeholders to implement and adapt athletic development programs.

  4. Liaise with external and internal coaches, and external medical practitioners associated with the student-athletes in the development of rehabilitation programs.
  5. Liaise with Parents/Carers regarding the current injury status of student-athletes within the MSA program.

  5. Demonstrated ability to work within a multidisciplinary team to elicit functional improvements and improved injury status within appropriate timeframes.
