EXER.4200.201/202: Advanced Study in Exercise Physiology

This course is a capstone course in Exercise Physiology. Students summate and synthesize classroom and clinical experiences in Exercise Physiology in the preparation of a final project.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  1. Recognize and describe pathophysiology and risk factors of neuromuscular disorders.
  2. Relate physiological mechanisms to the physical activity project that is developed.
  3. Apply the concepts of the exercise prescription and health promotion to the design of an individualized training program or project that is population specific.
  4. Design a project that is a comprehensive delivery of professional services concerned with the analysis, improvement, and maintenance of health and fitness.
  5. Summarize the proposed project in a written format that reflects neurophysiological principles, biomechanical principles, kinesiological principles and appropriate use of medical terminology.
  6. Identify and present the current needs of the health and fitness services for populations with motor impairment.
  7. Produce a project which utilizes entry level skills of an exercise physiologist.
  8. Formulate a final presentation that reflects the systematic planning of the project.
  9. Present the final project using proper oral/written communication skills.
  10. Prioritize time effectively to meet the self-determined action plan.
  11. Revise the project as needed to adjust for unexpected circumstances.
  12. Display motivation and self-initiation in the development of the project.
  13. Appraise peer-projects and provide constructive criticisms based upon the learned knowledge of neuromuscular disorders and their impacts on the fitness condition.
