What is an athletic trainer?
Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. More than 70% of athletic trainers have at least a master’s degree and received formal instruction in areas such as injury/illness prevention, first aid and emergency care, assessment of injury/illness, human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic modalities, rehabilitation and nutrition. Classroom learning is enhanced through clinical education experiences. Visit the NATA for more information about the athletic training profession.
