What services are provided?

The clinic will provide effective, evidence-based exercise intervention to help manage and treat a broad range of disease conditions in a variety of health situations.

Services will be delivered by our Masters of Exercise Physiology students under the supervision of Accredited Exercise Physiologists or directly by an Accredited Exercise Physiologist.

Students will gain hands-on and diverse experience in the practice of exercise physiology, and be exposed to patients of all ages, and with varied fitness levels.

The clinic will also provide placement opportunities so that our students can apply their specialised skills in exercise physiology practice, assessment and intervention to real-life cases.

During the clinic placement shifts, students will gain experience in professional practices such as initial assessment, exercise prescription, exercise delivery, case note documentation, case conferencing and administration duties using the practice management systems.
