Major: Exercise Physiology
After seeing my classmates struggle through graduate school with lab techniques and other components, I have realized what a great education I received at Saint Francis and it shows that it really prepared me.
My undergraduate education was exceptional at preparing me for Physical Therapy (PT) school. The rigor of the undergraduate program prepared me for a challenging PT graduate program at Saint Francis University. My professors were not only knowledgeable in Exercise Physiology and at their profession, but also how to relate to college students by presenting them stimulating ideas and engaging lectures and labs that prepared me to earn certifications and easily transition to graduate studies.
The Exercise Physiology major at Saint Francis University has provided me superior preparation on the path to becoming a physician. In addition to the strong core science education, this experience has given me employable, clinical, and interpersonal skills that a health care professional must embody. Of equal importance, I participated in several research opportunities, including designing my own research study that was presented at the American College of Sports Medicine's national meeting. I highly recommend this path for anybody considering a future in the health care field.
I feel that my experience at Saint Francis University set me up to excel in graduate school and gave me an advantage over the other students. I found that I had a superior knowledge of anatomy and physiology.
