Dr. Jeremy Sibold is an assistant professor in the Rehabilitation and Movement Science Department where he teaches courses to both doctoral students in physical therapy and undergraduate students in athletic training and exercise and movement science. He is a nationally certified athletic trainer (ATC) and has spent the last 15 years in both clinical and academic settings. He has served as a clinical outreach athletic trainer and collegiate head football athletic trainer, and has also held academic positions including athletic training program director and department chair for exercise science at previous institutions.
His research interests include the relationship(s) between exercise and mental health, and predicting musculoskeletal injury using psychosocial variables. Specifically, Dr. Sibold is looking to further define the relationship between exercise and psychological constructs including mood, anxiety, self-efficacy and learning. He feels strongly that exercise is an underused treatment adjunct in both healthy and clinical populations.
