Athletic Training professionals care for athletes, in the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic injuries and medical conditions.
About the Program

Athletic Trainers collaborate with physicians and other members of the healthcare community to optimize the activity and normal function of patients and clients.
