All exercise-physiology students complete an internship prior to graduation. Students are assessed in the middle and upon completion of their internship by their preceptor, using a standardized rubric. Students give a presentation of their internship experience.

Exercise-physiology students in the personal-training and corporate-fitness tract assist with the University Wellness Program and serve as personal trainers to faculty members and staff during winter and spring quarters.

All exercise-physiology students assist with athletic testing of athletic teams at ONU.

Students are encouraged to take national certifications exams. The exercise-physiology program is recognized by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) for having a program that prepares graduates for the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) exam.

Students perform athletic testing and body-composition analysis and present the collected data to coaches and players in practicum classes.
