The bachelor of science in clinical physiology prepares students to enter clinical areas of health and allied health care where exercise is an integral part of prophylactic and rehabilitative programs. Such areas include cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, specialized metabolic disorder clinics, athletic training/sports medicine, and as exercise physiology assistants to physical therapists. Many clinical jobs require a master’s degree and/or additional certification. This degree also prepares students for eligibility to enter graduate school or specialized post-graduate certification programs in several areas including physical and occupational therapy, physical therapy assistant, physician assistant, athletic training, and master/doctoral level studies in integrated human physiology, and exercise science. Additional courses may be required to satisfy all pre-requisites for admission eligibility to some graduate and professional programs.
