Fieldwork and Internships

IEP Concentration

For students who are interested in clinical or applied exercise physiology, the program offers a clinical internship option as a culminating experience, during which you will complete 300 hours of fieldwork at a clinical or practice-based site. Among other locations, placements can occur at hospitals, rehabilitation centers, with local sports or athletic teams, or in the laboratories of Kinesiology research collaborators who are conducting basic science or clinical trials.

Students are encouraged to take the lead in identifying fieldwork placement opportunities, and faculty members support them in locating placements that align with their interests and career goals.

Additionally, you can use the 300-hour fieldwork experience to partially fulfill the requirements for taking the Certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist exam. (Additional requirements might be needed beyond completion of the MS in Kinesiology program to qualify to take this exam.)
