The PERFORM Centre is open to internship opportunities with faculties and departments from across the university interested in prevention.
The PERFORM Centre currently offers students enrolled in Concordia's Department of Exercise Science dynamic and hands-on internships using the best equipment in the field. Internship students work with qualified professionals to design and deliver programs to the community.
PERFORM's Athletic Therapy Internships offer students from Concordia's Department of Exercise Science a unique opportunity to be guided by certified instructors in the development of treatment options for clients suffering from musculoskeletal issues.
Athletic therapy interns follow their client's entire course of treatment — from assessment to treatment to discharge.
Student interns are charged with gathering information on their client's medical history and performing a physical assessment in order to determine a treatment plan. Interns then present the plan to their supervisor —a licensed athletic therapist— who ensures that all appropriate tests and enquiries have been made before adopting a proper treatment plan. Treatments include ultrasound, heat, manual therapy, exercise or whichever methods have been decided upon.
PERFORM's Clinical Exercise Physiology Internships offer students from Concordia's Department of Exercise Science an opportunity to guide community health program participants. Specifically, they follow participants through a series of assessments meant to establish baseline measurements to help determine how to:
- improve the body's overall functioning
- over a particular period of time
- under specific conditions
During assessments students build on their knowledge, skills and abilities as well as design and deliver safe and effective exercise routines to participants enrolled in the PERFORM Centre's community health programs.
