Texas ACSM Lectures
These popular lectures are designed to provide insight into the biological, biomechanical, and psychological bases for the changes that occur during and following exercise in both normal and pathological states. They help attendees better comprehend state-of-the-art and innovative basic science, applied science, and clinical information, which will increase the their knowledge of exercise, fitness, health, and physical performance.
Our goal is to help students recognize contemporary controversial issues related to sports medicine and exercise science; identify new approaches to, and perspectives on, problems in exercise science and sports medicine through interaction with scientists and clinicians in related fields; and recognize the importance of basic science research to understand problems that result from physical inactivity.
The mission of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) is to advance and integrate scientific research to provide educational and practical applications of exercise science and sports. The target audience is UT Arlington students, faculty, staff, and professionals interested in the field of sports medicine and exercise science.
The TASCM lectures began on the UTA campus in 1987: click or tap here for the full list of lectures to date.
