Discover Athletic Training
Athletic training is a dynamic, challenging field for individuals interested in providing essential rehabilitative care in cases of injury and other medical conditions. The athletic training program at Presentation offers extensive hands-on learning opportunities with multiple sports, and delivers knowledge across a broad spectrum of related topics and subject areas.
“It’s a quality learning environment. The student-teacher ratio allows for a more focused learning experience. For my major personally, I get all my learning experience pretty much in the clinic every day. I take my classes in the clinic and I do my required clinical hours in the clinic. This makes for a very consistent, hands on learning experience.”
Students in the athletic training program complete both classroom and clinical portions of the curriculum, including a clinical experience each semester. You’ll immerse yourself in the study of the entire continuum of care provided by athletic trainers, including prevention, clinical diagnosis, emergency care, and therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries.
Students in the athletic training program complete clinical rotations with every sports team at Presentation, gaining the kind of hands-on skills that distinguish them throughout their careers. They are able to attend regional, and national athletic training symposia to gain hands-on training at high schools, colleges, junior hockey, family practice, and sports medicine clinics.
Graduates of the athletic training program are prepared to enter the field after earning their state licensure. Our graduates have gone on to succeed at a broad range of professional sports teams and organizations, high schools, colleges, and health care practices. As athletic trainers, you’ll be a critical part of the health care team, working under the direction of physicians.
