New for 2019-2020- Reduced time to completion and reduced total semester hours required for degree completion means students can begin professional practice sooner and with less expense.

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.
