- What is an Athletic Trainer? We provide the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions
- Who are Athletic Trainers? Highly trained, multi-skilled healthcare professionals who render service or treatment, under the direction of or in collaboration with a physician, in accordance with their education, training and the state’s statutes, rules and regulations.
- Athletic trainers are sometimes confused with personal trainers. There is, however, a large difference in the education, skillset, job duties and patients of an athletic trainer and a personal trainer. The athletic training academic curriculum and clinical training follows the medical model. Athletic trainers must graduate from an accredited baccalaureate or master’s program.
