The Athletic Training Program (ATP) is designed to prepare students for a career as an athletic trainer. Athletic trainers are health care professionals that specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses to athletes and those engaged in physical activity. The ATP involves both classroom and laboratory instruction and hands-on clinical experiences.  The ATP is also appropriate for students interested in continuing their education in medicine, sports medicine, physical therapy, physician assistant, or other health care professions. All students interested in the ATP must complete specific prerequisites and a separate application for admission to the major. Admission to the major is highly competitive with an enrollment limit of 60 students. The Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) through the 2021-2022 academic year.
