Michelle Boling, PhD 

Assistant Professor, Clinical & Applied Movement Sciences 

Michelle Boling earned her BA in Exercise and Sport Science from UNC Chapel Hill, a MS degree in Kinesiology and Health Promotion from the University of Kentucky, and her Ph.D. in Human Movement Science from UNC Chapel Hill. Her research area focuses on understanding what predisposes young adults to chronic knee pain.  


Dr. Boling says there is no better way for students to learn than to have to apply the knowledge and skills they gain in the classroom to real life situations when providing healthcare to physically active individuals. “I am fully aware that many of our students continue their education in other health profession;….my goal is for each student to have multiple transforming experiences during their time in our program that will help to shape the rest of their lives as a healthcare provider.” 


Dr. Boling is looking to build on to the community-based activities she has created for her students to better align with her course learning outcomes and foster growth with the clinical skills required of effective athletic trainers.
