What is an Athletic Trainer
Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who work as part of the sports medicine health care team. They connect the dots between basic health care and physical activity. Although athletic trainers are most associated with school athletic departments, gyms, sports clubs, and professional sports organizations, their skills are helpful in many other settings as well. Mercy’s certified Athletic Trainers (ATs) work under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other healthcare professionals, athletics administrators, coaches, and parents. They are important “eyes and ears” on the playing field or court for making sure athletes stay safe and healthy and wellness educators for the community.
