Students completing this subject authentically participate in supervised professional practice placements under the guidance of experienced clinical educators. Students are required to attend practicums on- and off-campus to undertake their supervised clinical exercise physiology practice across various exercise settings including public or private hospitals and health services, commercial clinic or community-based settings, or via tele-practice. In this subject, students consolidate and advance their anatomical, pathophysiological, pathomechanical, and behavioural sciences knowledge and skills across a range of conditions (e.g., musculoskeletal, occupational, cardiorespiratory, metabolic, renal, cancer, neurological, and mental health). Students assess, prescribe, and deliver exercise to people across the full health spectrum to improve, maintain, or reduce the decline of health-related status and function. Emphasis is placed on developing the students’ abilities to integrate the knowledge, skills, principles of evidence-informed practice, clinical reasoning, ethical behaviours, and professional attributes that are necessary to function as an effective allied health care practitioner using a person-centred approach.
