Graduate students are exposed to and directly involved in research covering the full multidisciplinary spectrum of human potential from young to old, fit to unfit, healthy to diseased, able-bodied to disabled, and from the casual recreational participant to the high-level athlete. In addition to human performance issues, APK faculty and students study the immediate and lasting effects of exercise and its use in disease prevention and rehabilitation. The purpose of this program is to give students the opportunity to develop advanced knowledge and competencies in Exercise Physiology. Clinical Exercise Physiologists practice in hospitals, clinics and wellness centers as part of a health care team that administers tests and develops programs of exercise, counseling, and education for patients with cardiopulmonary, metabolic, and musculoskeletal diseases. Clinical Exercise Physiologists may also practice in health-promotion programs with populations that are apparently healthy or low-risk. This program offers core requirements that must be completed by all students, and elective courses that permit the student to choose between a Rehabilitative Emphasis and a Preventive Emphasis (health promotion).
