Abstract: This study maintains that university-level physical education does not currently include or implement health education. As a consequence of this, college and university students have a very weak theoretical understanding of health. This study maintains that university-level physical education should focus on the state of students’ health, using the principles of the health quotient. Of particular importance are problems related to mental health, social adaptive ability, and lifestyle. Physical education should incorporate instruction based on health quotient-related theories and techniques; doing so will lay a strong foundation for students’ lifelong physical education. In addition to opening up new paths and methods in research related to the all-around health education of college students, this can also enrich and perfect the theoretical system of modern sports science, as well as provide a new line of thinking and perspective to university-level physical education reform.
