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.Athletic trainers work with a variety of patient populations and in a variety of work settings. Secondary school, collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes; youth and private sports leagues and facilities; military and public safety personnel; performing artists; corporate, industrial and manufacturing work places; and hospitals, clinics, and physician practices.During their 2 years in the MSAT students will have the opportunity to complete a variety of clinical experiences under the supervision of our clinical preceptors. In the first year, students will attend clinical and didactic courses simultaneously in order to build a solid foundation of theory and practice. Clinical coursework during the second year of the program is fully immersive. Students are not required to be on-campus for class, thus enabling them to progress their clinical skills and decision-making towards autonomous practice upon graduation. Students can complete the immersive clinical experiences anywhere in the US.visit our website: http://www.marywood.edu/ates/athletic-training/Email the Program Director: firstname.lastname@example.orgThe admissions cycle for our 2-year MSAT program (Summer 2020 start) has begun!
