The bachelor of science - clinical physiology specifically prepares students to enter graduate or specialized post-baccalaureate professional programs in critical high-demand, health-care arenas including physical and occupational therapy, physicians’ assistants, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, sports medicine-athletic training, chiropractic medicine, and others. This degree also prepares students for advanced graduate study in integrated human and exercise physiology. Most clinical health-care professions require education beyond the bachelor degree level.
