About the Health and Rehabilitation Clinic

We provide high quality evidence-based exercise rehabilitation services for people living with heart disease and other chronic illnesses or injury.

A client works with his clinical exercise physiologist.

As a leading research and student training centre for postgraduate students seeking to become clinical exercise physiologist's, our clinic’s operational structure includes our postgraduate students, who are a part of each client’s clinical team. Based in our well-equipped physiology laboratory and biomechnics unit, each team is managed by experienced professional teaching fellows from our Exercise Science’s programme, some of whom are leading researchers in their field.

What is Clinical Exercise Physiology (CEP)?

CEP uses exercise as medicine to modify the impact of chronic disease. It is one of our country’s recognised allied health professions, with New Zealand joining countries such as Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada in acknowledging the value that clinical exercise physiologists add to the wellbeing of those living with chronic disease. Many of New Zealand’s leading registered clinical exercise physiologists are based at the University of Auckland’s Health and Rehabilitation Clinic, located at new purpose-built facilities in Newmarket. Our staff teach and oversee our CEP postgraduate students, training them to be the next generation of CEP professionals.
