Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities. Career paths: Listed as one of the “Top 10” fastest growing occupations by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Athletic Training is a pathway to an exciting career as a skilled healthcare professional. Graduates can use their entry-level skills to work as certified athletic trainers (ATC) in high schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, industrial settings, and professional sports teams. Opportunities for graduate (masters or doctoral) studies in athletic training or other allied health careers (including physical therapy, physician assistant, occupational therapy, medical school) are also options for graduates from the ATEP. Others have utilized their undergraduate degrees and continued their education, and currently work as educators in athletic training, teachers, physical therapists, physicians, physician assistants, and chiropractors throughout the nation.
