Department of Exercise Physiology and Sport Injuries and Corrective Movements

The degree program for Sport Physiology aims to upgrade student's theoretical and experimental knowledge in relation to the mechanism of different systems of the body such as: in-cellular organs, tissues, vascular system, nervous muscle system and endocrine glands when acting. In this program, students are trained to carry out research in sport sciences and related subjects such as improving the efficiency of athletes and non-athletes, rehabilitation of patients, and measuring the effects of exercises on the people’s health and performance of people.
The aim of the program for Sport Injuries and Corrective Movements is to provide experts capable of improving the physical and mental health as well as motor activities of people through teaching, research, planning, and supervising. Such people include a range of patients having physical and mental problems, which make a gap between them and normal public health. This also includes people who are at risk of sport damages, people known as patients, disabled or weak with low physical, mental and behavioral abilities indicating that they have shortcomings in health norms.
