Contact Mr. Petrie

I am a Lecturer and Lab Instructor in Kinesiology at McDaniel College. Prior to my academic appointment, I was Director of the Human Performance Lab at the Union Memorial Hospital's Sports Medicine Center in Baltimore, Maryland. My expertise is in human anatomy, clinical/applied exercise physiology and biomechanics. During the 14 years that I was at the Sports Medicine Center, I conducted physiological testing and biomechanical analysis on over 5000 athletes.

Teaching undergraduate lecture/laboratory courses in Human Anatomy and Biomechanics has provided me with the opportunity to share my interest in the evaluation of biomechanical and physiological parameters of the human body.
