  • Program Type: Graduate free-standing minor
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2015
  • Length of program in credits (master's): 9
  • Length of program in credits (doctoral): 12
  • This program does not require summer semesters for timely completion.
The master's or doctoral minor in clinical physiology and movement science is an innovative free-standing graduate minor that is available to University of Minnesota graduate students. Offering a uniquely interdisciplinary program in a new, emerging field of study, the minor is designed for graduate students in clinical, engineering, nursing, public health, and medical fields who are interested in the clinical aspects of physiology and movement science. The interdisciplinary coursework combines physiology and movement science with clinical skills for research and the diagnosis and assessment of disease conditions. Developed by faculty with rich collective expertise from across the University, the minor offers students a choice of two tracks: clinical physiology or clinical movement science. The minor is attractive to graduate students seeking a Ph.D. or master's degree in kinesiology, rehabilitation sciences, and the speech and hearing sciences; in biomedical or mechanical engineering; in the School of Nursing; in the School of Public Health; or seeking a combined M.D./Ph.D. who have an interest in a variety of medical fields such as neurology, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, orthopedics, and pediatrics.
Program Delivery
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Prerequisites for Admission
Special Application Requirements:
Students wishing to pursue this graduate minor must be currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at the University of Minnesota.
For an online application or for more information about graduate education admissions, see the General Information section of this website.
Program Requirements
Use of 4xxx courses toward program requirements is permitted under certain conditions with adviser approval.
CPMS 5101 Introduction to Clinical Physiology and Movement Science is a required core course for all students seeking the minor. KIN 5987 Professional Skills and Grant Writing for Health Sciences, 2 credits, is also required for a Ph.D. minor, unless an equivalent course has been taken or the student can document previous grant writing experience. Additional elective courses are selected in consultation with the faculty adviser and approved by the director of graduate studies (DGS), in order to satisfy the requirements for the minor. Courses chosen will depend on the background and goals of the student. Students can select one of two tracks: clinical physiology or clinical movement science.
