Univ. of Evansville

Introduction

The DMAL internship program started in the Spring 2012. Interns learn to research in the areas of physical performance, design, injury and rehabilitation. The first goal is to become proficient in operation of some of the most advanced biomechanical and movement analysis research equipment on the market. After an intern learns the equipment use then they will be expected to either assist in training others in equipment operations, assist in ongoing research studies and design a research project of their own.

Application process
