Program Description
In this two-year program, students gain knowledge through real-life experiences in the prevention, recognition, treatment, rehabilitation and administration of athletic, as well as non-athletic, common injuries and conditions.  Under the direction of a nationally certified and state-licensed Athletic Trainer, students develop both basic and advanced skills in a lab setting during the first year.  Instruction in the second year focuses on individual career exploration outside of the classroom with local professionals in medical, clinical and fitness facilities.
