Program Overview

The certificate provides a foundation in the health and wellness aspects of participating in performing arts. There are two primary target groups:[1] performing arts students desiring added qualification in health and wellness to meet the increasing attention of arts organizations to the wellbeing of artists, and [2] healthcare and other health science students (e.g., athletic training, exercise physiology, nutrition) desiring added qualification in health and wellness for performing artists as a means of entering the field of performing arts medicine. The certificate equips a student to engage with the field of performing arts medicine by understanding how the human body functions and how performing arts induce substantial physical demands on artists. These demands are effectively managed through proper artistic technique, exercise, nutrition, stress reduction, and appropriate healthcare. The health and healthcare of performing artists is receiving rapidly increasing attention today. Because of its program in Science and Health in Artistic Performance, including the Clinic for Science and Health in Artistic Performance (SHAPe Clinic), Ohio University is an international leader in performing arts medicine.

*Note: This program was approved by the Ohio University Board of Trustees on 6/23/2017.
