What is an Athletic Trainer

Athletic Trainers are healthcare professionals who provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.  To become a Certified Athletic Trainer, one must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training curriculum. Accredited programs include formal instruction in areas such as injury/illness prevention, emergency care of injury/illness, assessment of injury/illness, human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic modalities, and nutrition.  For more information about Athletic Trainers, visit the National Athletic Trainers’ Association at www.nata.org.
