        Our CAATE accredited Athletic Training Education Program is delivered in a structured course sequence.  We encourage students to expand their education opportunities through minors in other areas and to pursue additional education in Post-Professional Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, and Chiropractic Medicine. Students wishing to do so should work with their academic advisor to customize their schedules to achieve these goals.
