WHAT IS AN ATHLETIC TRAINER?

Certified Athletic Trainers are medical experts in preventing, recognizing, managing, and rehabilitating injuries that occur during physical activity. Athletic Trainers (AT’s) can help avoid unnecessary medical treatment or get the appropriate medical attention if needed. 

Athletic Training is recognized by the American Medical Association as an allied health 
care profession. AT’s specialize in six main domains:

• Prevention

• Immediate Care

• Clinical Evaluation and Diagnosis of Injuries

• Treatment, Rehabilitation, and Reconditioning

• Organization and Administration

• Professional Responsibility 

 Education Required:

  • Bachelor’s Degree from an athletic training accredited University
  • 70% of AT’s Have Masters’ or PhD degrees
  • Passing a National Board of Certification Exam

WHO DOES AN ATHLETIC TRAINER WORK WITH?
