Saint Francis University was commended for continuous commitment to improving education by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), a national accreditation association for allied health education programs. The group presented Saint Francis with an initial accreditation award for the university’s exercise physiology program on January 16.
The committee on Accreditation for the Exercise Sciences (CoAES) and CAAHEP’s site visitors performed a peer review which recognized Saint Francis University’s compliance with the nationally established accreditation standards.
These standards are established by the following: CAAHEP, CoAES, American College of Sports Medicine, American Council on Exercise, American Kinesiotherapy Association, Cooper Institute, and National Academy of Sports Medicine.
The exercise physiology program is built on the foundational sciences of chemistry, biology, anatomy, physics, and mathematics.
