This course will provide you information about the epidemiology and the pathophysiology of respiratory, metabolic, cardiovascular and immune diseases. You will gain knowledge of how to set up and implement exercise testing and programming in these special populations in order to provide symptomatic relief, as well as to manage the underlying disease. You will also learn how to manage the interaction between exercise and medications in these special populations. By the end of the semester you will be able to successfully use exercise testing and programming in individuals with these diseases to improve their health and quality of life. The teaching and learning approaches used in this course will include problem-based learning as well as more traditional evidence-based information provided during the lectures.
