Learning Outcomes
Large number of people take part in organized sports in clubs, or are physically active in recreational sports. Thus, most exercise physiologists and physicians are faced with problems related to sports medicine , both traumatic and nontraumatic problems. Primary goal of this course, is to provide all the necessary theoretical information for the understanding of the functional changes and adaptations from exercise training. Important questions, such as overuse injuries, overtraining syndrom, heat illness, heart disease, drugs, nutrition, immunity, infections, and amenorrhea will be discussed in depth. The aim of this course is to support all those involved in the broad spectrum of sports medicine.
