Cancer Exercise Specialist Training Course

This week long course will address the following topics: theoretical foundations in cancer diagnosis, cancer therapies, and treatment-related side-effects, cancer related exercise and physical therapy, assessment, practical laboratory experience, summary of the research, and the development and management of a cancer rehabilitation facility. Students who successfully pass the Cancer Exercise Specialist Training Course will have the knowledge necessary to safely and effectively design an exercise training program for those diagnosed with cancer. Students will engage in practical laboratory experiences that will enable them to conduct effective and accurate exercise assessments--designed specifically for cancer survivors. This workshop allows students to enhance their personal training or other health-related practice to better serve the cancer population. Finally, information will be given to those interested in beginning their own cancer rehabilitation facility. Health care professionals working with cancer patients in areas of exercise physiology, physical therapy, nursing, rehabilitation, nurse practitioners, personal trainers, medical personnel, etc. are encouraged to attend. A bachelor’s degree in a related field is required.
