PRESENTERS: Robert Berry, MS, RCEP, FAACVPR & Cemal Ozemek, PhD, ACSM-CEP, FACSM
ACSM CECs: 1.5 (one and one-half)
Many clinical exercise physiologists (CEPs) experience limited job opportunities, unsatisfactory salaries, and restricted career growth. Licensure for CEPs is often promoted as the solution to these issues. This webinar will be an academic discussion of contributing factors and perspectives on future opportunities. Two experts who have been leading advocates for CEPs will present their opinions on the role of these items and the evolution of CEPs in the United States.
Robert Berry, MS, ACSM-CEP, RCEP is the Clinical Coordinator of Cardiac Rehabilitation at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan and Fellow of the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. He is a Master’s prepared clinical exercise physiologist earning his degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1999. Robert has held numerous leadership positions in professional organizations over the last two decades serving as President of two American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) affiliate societies for multiple terms each, and as President of the Clinical Exercise Physiology Association (CEPA). He has also served as the AACVPR Medicare Administrative Contractor Liaison for two jurisdictions. In 2011, Robert co-wrote a bill to license clinical exercise physiologists and testified to the Massachusetts State Legislature on its behalf. Currently, Robert is serving as the CEPA Liaison to the Physical Activity Alliance that is exploring reimbursement opportunities for clinical exercise physiologists.
Cemal Ozemek, PhD, ACSM-CEP is a Clinical Associate Professor and Director of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. He received his PhD from Ball State University in clinical exercise physiology and completed his postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Dr. Ozemek’s research interests include: 1) cardiac and vascular adaptations to physical activity and exercise interventions in patients with cardiovascular disease; 2) cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with noncommunicable chronic diseases; and 3) community-based health and wellness promotion. He has over 10 years of experience working in clinical settings that provide exercise testing/prescription and monitoring services for outpatient cardiac, pulmonary, bariatric surgery and cancer patients as well as healthy older adults.
