Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science

http://www.uvm.edu/~cnhs/rms/

Exercise is a key to the maintenance of health and the prevention of heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity and associated degenerative diseases and chronic conditions.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science comprises undergraduate majors in Athletic Training Education and in Exercise and Movement Science, and a doctoral degree in Physical Therapy. Graduates of these programs influence individuals across the life span by fostering wellness, preventing injuries and disease, facilitating high levels of skill, maintaining or restoring fitness, and rehabilitating individuals with injuries, diseases, chronic conditions, and disabilities.

Requirements for admission are the same as the general university requirements, with the addition that applicants must have taken high school biology, mathematics through trigonometry or precalculus, and chemistry; physics is highly recommended.
