I am excited about the opportunity to attend the University of Vermont Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. As a Sports Science major and student athlete in cross country skiing and running, I have gained significant experience with human motion analysis and am extremely interested in the Human Performance Center at the University of Vermont. Additionally, I am impressed by the emphasis on integrating research findings to improve clinical care of patients.

Many colleges in the United States offer Kinesiology as a stand alone major. Each college has specific study of kinesiology it covers for a specific field the student wants to work in for his or her professional career. However, I would like to discuss the overall major of kinesiology and what specific field the institution helps students transition from education to profession. The two colleges we will take a look at is California Polytechnic State University, in San Luis Obispo, and San Jose State University’s kinesiology program. The difference in the two institutions is that San Jose State University goes by semester system while California Polytechnic State University goes by quarter system.
After high school, I’d wish to pursue a degree as a physical therapist assistant. Ever since I was younger I always knew that I wanted to become a PTA or else an athletic trainer. Sports introduced me to physical therapy and physical therapy assistants. I’ve played sports ever since I

You might think twice before sending a tennis coach to baseball’s spring training season; although there would be overlap in general kinesthetic and sports psychology knowledge, the nuances of the two sports are very different and require disparate sets of coaching skills. Just as a baseball team needs a coach who understands baseball, gifted students need guidance from well-trained, challenging teachers who understand their educational needs. Teacher training requirements for working with gifted students are determined at the state and local levels. Although gifted and talented students are in every school and classroom, few districts require that all classroom teachers receive training to address the educational needs of advanced learners.

In Chapter one of our text, Introduction to Kinesiology the Science of Human Physical Activity by Stephan Wallace. We are introduced to three major types of movement, Sportive movement, symbolic movement, and supportive movement. At the basis of all three movements they are very similar although they highlight different attributes of an athlete or a person living an everyday lifestyle.
“Diagnosis is both a With this authoritative guide APTA finally had hit the nail on the head as to the scope of our practice and define the basis of our diagnosis. 27 years ago, this has been communicated by Sahrmann (1988) that there is a necessity to identify these categories so as to give credence to our diagnoses by merit of our education and license. What this APTA’s white paper achieved was to put into fruition, as what has Sahrmann (2014) envisioned, in defining and promoting the human movement system as the foundation for optimizing movement and our professional identity. This clearly is a defining moment in our profession because it provided a clearer picture of our expertise. As Coffin-Zadai (2007) enunciated during her 2004 John P. Maley’s lecture “We need professional and public recognition for who we are and what we do. Physical therapists need to own the human movement system and it’s management from the science to the practice” (p.
There are various steps I have taken since the last application cycle to strengthen my application. For instance, through taking an anatomical kinesiology course, a developmental psychology course, re-taking the prerequisite biology I and II courses, and gaining hands on experience by working as a physical therapy aide. The anatomical kinesiology course was designed to prepare students for graduate school level coursework. It was designed to teach students the anatomical aspects of the human body, with an emphasis on the skeletal, muscular, mechanical, structural and functional aspects of anatomy and human movement. Taking this advanced course has allowed me to enhance my knowledge of human anatomy and human movement. In addition, taking

Kinesthesis is the sensation of movement or strain in muscles, tendons, and joints; muscle sense. Pretend you’re standing in the dark in a room and you’re reaching around feelings for walls to know where the light switch is or a door knob to feel your way outside. Kinesthesis gives us that sense where we feel what’s around us even if we can’t see us. pretend not having it, life would be horrible.

With an expansive and diverse experience, along with an education from Longwood University; I am well versed in exercise prescriptions, providing instructional assistance, and working with medical diagnosis.

I decided to pursue Kinesiology as my major because I am very much interested in helping people of all ages reach their fitness goals, give them knowledge on how to live a healthy life and to help them understand that healthy eating and exercise needs to be a part of their lifestyle. Since I was six years old I have always played sports. I was forced into playing as a kid due to the fact that my parents and some of my cousins are former athletes. I began to develop a passion for sports that has continued to this day. Life was difficult when I was younger. I was overweight and there was an unfortunate reaction of the other students who made a mockery of my weight. Nevertheless, I was still surprisingly athletic. I would spend nights upset due to the fact that I was bigger than all of my friends and would constantly ask my dad how to lose weight and get muscles. Granted, I was around 10 years old at the time so there are not many exercises that you can do at this age besides push-ups, sit-ups and running laps around the track.
