Eric Sorenson, PhD, ATC, teaches a variety of courses within the kinesiology program, which he directs. His research includes utilizing movement screens to identify athletes who are at risk of becoming injured and identifying movement faults related to current injury. This provides a timely connection with advances in injury prevention and management within the sports medicine field. His teaching and clinical experience (with an emphasis in anatomy and physiology, injury rehabilitation, manual therapy, and human performance) enable him to initiate a thorough learning experience for students that considers the regional interdependence of the human body. Sorenson greatly enjoys supporting students through challenging course content and helping them fulfill their academic and career goals.
