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.
