The Athletic Training Education Major prepares students to work with physically-active populations (e.g., athletic teams, dance, circus, NASCAR, Disney, rodeo, PT clinics). The certified athletic trainer functions as an integral member of the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges, universities, professional teams, and sports medicine clinics, providing leadership in the prevention, evaluation, immediate care, and rehabilitation of sport-related injuries. The Athletic Training major requires fulfillment of both academic coursework and clinical fieldwork experiences. This program of study is approved by the Commission on the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and is designed to prepare students for certification as athletic trainers by the Board of Certification (BOC) and for Class "A" certification in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The mission of the ATP is to teach ethical reasoning abilities and interpersonal skills to students that will work with the physically active population, to produce clinicians who display sound decision-making and good judgments through critical thinking and analysis of salient facts, and to encourage students to assume a leadership role in their professional careers.
