More and more people with busy work and tension lives increasingly take exercise to promote health, but a few of them neglect the exercise program should be further designed for different individuals. In order to reduce injury risk and guide people to choose suitable exercise, we set up “Faculty of Sports Medicine” on August, 2003. The course is designed to merge medical principles and sciences into sports and physical performance.
The programmed course provides Bachelor degree through full-time- four-year education. Majoring in Sports Medicine focuses not only in learning basic knowledge of the treatment for diseases and sports injuries, but also on injury/disease prevention and management of health care. The first two years’ courses emphasize on basic science of sports medicine, such as Human Physiology, Anatomy of the Human Body, Health Management, Kinesiology, Exercise Nutrition, and First-Aid. During the courses of the last two years, we provide our students the opportunities in practical training, and also arrange sufficient specialized subjects required the professional certifications of fitness leader and athletic trainer.
In short, we seek to educate a distinguished/qualified group as fitness leaders and athletic trainers in the field of Sports Medicine, so as to promote the concept of health between communities and schools further. In conclusion, we truly hope all the nation people acquire optimal fitness throughout their life.
