Life After Skidmore
Our graduates are involved in a wide variety of health-related professional careers including clinical research, physical and occupational therapy, nursing, and medicine. Many graduates pursue advanced degrees in exercise physiology, public health, immunology and genetics in hopes to develop new knowledge that can improve human health. Several former students have gone on to become faculty members at major research universities, most recently is Wesley Lefferts ’11 who is now an Assistant Professor in the College of Human Sciences at Iowa State University.
