Primary goal of this course is to provide all the necessary theoretical and practical information for the understanding of general and specific topics of Sports Medicine.
Thus, the functional changes and adaptations from exercise training, as well as the effects of detraining in both athletes and patients of any age will be taught. Additionally, important questions, such as common disorders during exercise and first aids, as well as the health risks from the use of ergogenic aids will be discussed in depth.
