What will I learn?

The clinical physiology and movement science postbaccalaureate certificate program is aimed at D.N.P. and M.D. fellows in nursing and medicine, as well as professionals in clinical fields, such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy. In addition, engineers working in the area of medical technology or medical device development are potential candidates. The interdisciplinary coursework combines physiology and movement science with clinical skills for research and the diagnosis and assessment of disease conditions. Students have the option to tailor the program to their individual needs and interest. They may select from a list of more than 30 courses. Developed by faculty with a rich collective expertise from across the University, the programs offer students a choice of two tracks: clinical physiology and clinical movement science.
