Exercise Physiology Clinic

UniSQ's Exercise Physiology Clinic was established as a community exercise rehabilitation service to provide low cost, shot term or ongoing care for patients with chronic and complex health conditions. The clinic is also available to patients who have exhausted available publicly funded services within the hospital system.

This clinic is operated by the School of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Southern Queensland, Ipswich Campus. The clinic offers services in a variety of areas including assessment, exercise prescription and education for individuals and groups. Services are provided by Sport and Exercise Sciences and Clinical Exercise Physiology students as part of the practicum requirements of their degrees at UniSQ under the supervision of staff who are experienced and accredited as Exercise Physiologists with Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA).
