• Description: This is the second annual international Ph.D. course on Physical Activity and Human Performance. The level of performance in relation to physical activity is attracting more and more interest. It is well agreed that the assessment and the extraction of performance outcomes are necessary for both the optimization of performance and the prevention of musculoskeletal injuries.

    The course will include a series of lectures from internationally recognized researchers and a series of experts from both Aalborg University and Aalborg University Hospital. The participants will gain knowledge in new methods used to assess human performance in laboratory and field environments. A strong emphasis will be given on the speakers-student interaction by organizing group work. The detailed agenda of the course will be provided on the course web site.

    The main topics will include neuromuscular, physiological and biomechanical adaptations to physical activity.

    Relevant papers and book chapters will be announced shortly before the course.

    The students participating to this course should have basic knowledge on anatomy, physiology and methods to assess human performance.

    Will be announced at the course.

  • Important information concerning PhD courses: 

    We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
