Department of Kinesiology
Concentrations - Sports Medicine
The Sports Medicine Concentration is designed to provide a pre-professional
program of study with a focus on Kinesiology that also encompasses
other fields of science (biology, chemistry, physics, health, nutrition, and
pharmacology) that are often prerequisite courses for graduate and professional
programs that deal with health care of the physically active.
This concentration is a first step toward a career in the field of
sports medicine. After completing this program students will have the necessary
academic and clinical experience to allow for future study in allied health
fields. Examples include, but are not limited to athletic training (available
in the department), physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician's assistant,
podiatry, dentistry, and medicine. Again, all of these fields require additional
graduate or professional study.
