Intensive Graduate Course in Exercise & Clinical Physiology
October 25 - 29, 2010

The Graduate Course was hosted by The Department of Exercise Science, Offices of Graduate Studies, Student Academic Services, Concordia University, in formal collaboration with The Office of International Relations and Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. The course took place at Concordia University.

The 1-week intensive advanced-level graduate credit course brought together faculty and students from Canadian and Danish Universities focusing on various topics in exercise and clinical physiology. This integrative research-based course covered basic science topics on physiological systems and extended to common clinical physiological applications. The course was limited to M.Sc. and/or Ph.D. students.
