As a graduate student in the Clinical Exercise Physiology Program, your first year will involve working primarily with the Adult Physical Fitness Program and the Clinical Exercise Physiology Laboratory. You'll engage in targeted coursework and practical experiences that will enable you to perform comprehensive health and fitness assessments, develop personalized exercise prescriptions, and guide members through the APFP as exercise leaders. In addition, you'll have the opportunity to work on ongoing research projects.
During your second year in the program, you'll gain invaluable experience working with patient populations in outpatient cardiac, pulmonary, and oncology rehabilitation programs at nearby Indiana University Health-Ball Memorial Hospital. You'll also take on a supervisory role in the CEP Laboratory, where you'll assist faculty research and mentor first-year students. If you're interested in further research experience, you can opt to complete a thesis or research project. Alternatively, if you're looking for more clinical experience, you can choose to complete an additional internship instead of a research project.
