A collaboration between Queen's Athletics and Recreation and the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies provides students in the Kinesiology or Physical Health Education programs a unique three-year, mini-stream of study that allows selected students the opportunity to explore the field of Athletic Therapy or the field of Strength and Conditioning.
Each stream allows students an enriched learning experience. In addition to required theory courses, students will work with varsity athletes and teams acquiring valuable skills, applied knowledge and invaluable experience. Therefore, the Field Placement and Internship course components will require a strong commitment from students as they will become an valued member of the Inter-University Sport Program.Students will apply at the end of first year for one of the twenty places in the Athletic Therapy mini-stream or for one of the twenty places in the Strength and Conditioning mini-stream.
YR1-YR2 students who want to START the mini-streams. Must apply through Athletics and Recreation.
Current YR2 students who started their A&R athletic therapy work this year and who are taking PPHE 331 in this current winter term.
Students with experience (usually two years) with Athletic Therapy or Strength and Conditioning in Athletics & Recreation. These students may do field placement or internship courses, but not both.
