The Athletic Training and Physical Therapy Clinic provides therapy for the University’s athletic teams, Student Health patients, faculty and staff, and physician referrals from the community. Offering M.Ed., Ed.D. and Ph.D. programs in athletic training and sports medicine, and an undergraduate program in sports medicine, the clinic provides practicums for both graduate and undergraduate students. It is located in the McCue Center, adjacent to University Hall.

The Center for Cardiac Health and Fitness provides professionally supervised programs of physical fitness enhancement and coronary risk factor modification. The programs provide the following services: (1) coronary risk factor screening, (2) medically supervised graded exercise testing (stress testing), (3) supervised exercise programs for normal adults, and (4) supervised exercise rehabilitation programs for coronary heart disease patients. The center also serves as a teaching and research facility for experiences in exercise physiology and sports medicine.

The Motor Development Clinic provides evaluative and prescriptive services for children and youth with motor development problems. Operated by the Department of Human Services, the clinic serves as a teaching laboratory to prepare motor development specialists, and provides a source of research opportunities to produce new knowledge and understanding about juvenile motor development.

The Motor Learning Laboratory is a research facility designed to provide for the study of factors which influence motor skill acquisition and performance. Research can be conducted to investigate perceptual constraints, movement speed, EEG correlates of movement, substructures of balance, strength, flexibility, etc., and psychological factors related to the acquisition and performance of motor skills. Individuals seeking research experiences related to motor skill acquisition and performance utilize this laboratory.

The Sport and Exercise Psychology Laboratory is designed for experimental and interview studies on such topics as observational learning, peer relationships, perceived competence in sport, coaching feedback, performance enhancement, and character development through sport.

The Sports Medicine/Athletic Training Research Laboratory conducts research in injury prevention and rehabilitation. Specific areas of research include isokinetic assessment of human muscle performance, postural sway (balance), and joint laxity. The laboratory also collaborates on research with several departments in the Health Sciences Center, including the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Department of Radiology.
