Applied Clinical Research Experiences
The Institute for Human Health and Sport Science Research at High Point University is a collaboration of faculty, clinicians, and students from multiple disciplines dedicated to injury prevention, rehabilitation, and the improved performance of active people. The mission of the Institute is to promote clinically driven research and quality education that bridges scientific inquiry and clinical practice. This is accomplished through an interdisciplinary approach to research and education that attracts and integrates students, faculty and clinicians from diverse professional backgrounds, experiences, and scientific perspectives in the degree programs in Athletic Training, Exercise Science, Physical Therapy and the proposed Doctor of Physical Therapy program. With a primary focus on injury risk and prevention, the Institute fosters a collaborative environment to support both faculty and student initiated activities that strive to reduce injury risk and improve the health and performance of physically active individuals of all ages.
