Dynamic & Challenging
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.
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. And you’ll be guided by a faculty of accomplished experts with vast experience in the field.
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 local, regional, and national athletic training symposia and gain additional hands-on training through clinical work at high schools, colleges and universities, junior hockey, family practice, and orthopedic/sports medicine clinics. And they take advantage of state-of-the-art facilities featured in our new Wellness Center.
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 universities, and at health care practices. As an athletic trainer, you’ll be a critical part of the health care team, providing essential care and working under the direction of physicians, as prescribed by state licensure statutes.
