The Clinical Track is designed for students interested in using exercise as therapy.  Clinical Exercise Medicine is an emerging field that is poised to grow as the population ages.  This field is for students who see the opportunity to provide exercise/fitness services as an integrated medical service.  With an entrepreneurial spirit students will prepare themselves to become the newest practitioners in the healthcare field.  Clinical Exercise Physiologists perform fitness assessments, design exercise prescriptions and implement therapeutic exercise programs for health promotion.
