This subject contains a 5 day Compulsory Residential School.
Students studying the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology (Rehabilitation) are to attend compulsory Residential Schools. These Residential Schools are 5 days in total. The Residential Schools will be held on CSU's Bathurst campus.
There will be two (2) COMPULSORY Residential School blocks:
Residential School 1 (to be held in the CSU Residential period at end of Session 1) will be of three (3) days duration, conducted at the end of Session 1; and
Residential School 2 will be of two (2) days duration, conducted at the end of Session 2.
Learning design is based on constructive alignment and authentic assessment with the major themes expanded via integrated workshops and students practical competencies assessment via authentic challenges faced by clinical exercise physiologists. Importantly, students will also be provided with opportunities to discuss assignments and to build networks with other students. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure they are able to attend BOTH compulsory Residential Schools.
The Residential School provides students with the opportunity to:
- engage in a community of practice that shares interest in and commitment to clinical exercise physiology;
- participate in scholarly discussion that refines understanding of clinical exercise assessment and the application of exercise prescription to minimise the influence of the target pathology;
- apply knowledge of the physiological aspects of clinical assessment and exercise prescription in rehabilitation; and
- demonstrate professional competencies related to the field of clinical exercise physiology.
