- About Deakin
Deakin University has a Clinical Exercise Learning Centre (CELC). The Learning Centre specialises in providing exercise services for people living with, or at risk of, chronic medical disease, injuries or disabilities. The centre is staffed by academics who are AEPs. This centre was developed to complement the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (H743) and provides opportunities to students enrolled to work with AEPs and the clients they service. This provides students with valuable opportunities for learning and application of clinical knowledge, and also provides added benefits for the clients they work with.
What is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist?
AEPs deliver exercise, lifestyle and behavioural modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, anxiety and depression disorders, neurological disorders such as Parkinson's Disease, cancer, arthritis, respiratory disease, musculoskeletal injury and many others. AEPs use exercise therapy to improve clients':
CELC believes that better outcomes can be achieved by educating and motivating clients to participate in exercise and in the planning of their lifestyle programs and by enabling them to connect exercise with healthy lifestyle.
CELC provides services to clients in a one-to-one or group environment, depending on client needs and goals. We currently have the following groups:
How to be referred
Clients may be eligible for referral by their GP through Medicare, Worksafe and TAC. Clients can also be referred by other allied health professionals and as a self-referral.
