“Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.” (CAATE, 2017)
Our mission is to mentor our AT students “…to become exceptional evidence-based healthcare professionals and distinguished athletic trainers.” As such, quality remains our top priority, as evidenced by our exceptional student-preceptor ratio (approximately 1:1) and our students’ (ATS) success on the national board BOC exam. Our first-time and overall BOC pass rate for the previous three years (2015-2018) is 100% (see our Outcomes page). Since our initial accreditation, 94.2% of those completing the major became AT's. Our alumni currently work in various settings including professional sports teams, colleges/universities, high schools, military bases, clinics, hospitals, medical offices, and industrial settings, among others.
Due to our impending application to transition our current BSAT program to the masters’ level, we are no longer accepting applications to the BSAT program.
