Clinical exercise physiology

DISCIPLINE

Overview

Become qualified as an accredited exercise physiologist, a recognized allied health professional, who specializes in the delivery of exercise. Chronic health problems (such as cancer or mental health) are known to respond positively to exercise. Sometimes exercise really is the best medicine.

Looking back at my time at Deakin the one thing that I won’t forget is the love to learn and to become more knowledgeable about anything that might interest you.
