The Medical Exercise Program Director (MEPD) acts of the liaison between the medical exercise facility or program and the medical community. The MEPD certificate prepares you to develop, manage and market a medical exercise program in any setting. The MEPD has advanced knowledge and skills in areas such as ergonomics, senior fitness, pharmacology and advanced medical exercise assessment and progression. There are 2 major projects each MED candidate must submit as well as completing 20 hours of observation in a rehab setting.
The MEPD offers you specialized knowledge beyond the MES or PRCS along with the additional skills to develop, market, manage and run a profitable practice in any setting. In addition to the clinical modules you will participate in a series of 16 LIVE webinars that review our METS program. These systems have been used by medical exercise practices around the world. Once a week on Monday evenings over 16 weeks (some sessions have homework assignments) at 9pm ET/6pm PT these modules are discussed in detail. See the schedule below.
