Benedictine University's Master of Science in Clinical Exercise Physiology (MS CEP) program now offers degree completion in 15 months on a full-time basis. The MS CEP program is designed in accordance with the American College of Sports Medicine for certification as a Certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist (ACSM-CEP). Exercise physiologists employed in the field teach clinical coursework to better prepare students for the expectations of professional practice. Through this coursework students develop the skills & qualifications to work in the prevention of cardiovascular, pulmonary and other lifestyle diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Students improve decision-making skills, learn to critically analyze the literature & demonstrate the ability to safely assess physiological performance of patients. The program’s curriculum also includes two internships for students to acquire 600 hours of hands-on clinical experience and training in the rehabilitation of individuals who have experienced problems related to chronic diseases.
