Athletic Training

The Athletic Training Program (ATP) is designed for students interested in becoming a Certified Athletic Trainer. Certified Athletic Trainers are medical professionals who specialize in the prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries. Students gain experience by working closely with Baylor student-athletes as well as clinical education experiences at off-campus sites. Available courses include:

  • Athletic Injury Care
  • Advanced Strength and Conditioning
  • Injury Assessment
  • Therapeutic Exercise
  • Exercise Physiology

An important element of the program is the clinical education component. Students' clinical learning experiences include sports practices, games, surgeries, general medical rotation, and an off-campus rotation at a high school or sports medicine clinic. These assignments give the students an opportunity to take the lessons from the classroom and apply their techniques in the field.

Students graduating from the ATP can expect to bring their skill set to almost any field. Athletic trainers provide services to secondary schools, colleges/universities and professional sports. They can also serve sports medicine clinics, emergency rooms and hospitals, physician offices, military or performing arts.
