University rank #701 (QS) , OK,
Athletic Training is an allied health field recognized by the American Medical Association. Certified athletic trainers specialize in the prevention, recognition/evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation and reconditioning of injuries due to physical activity.


Employment of athletic trainers is projected to grow 19 percent from 2012 to 2022, which is faster than the average for all occupations. Most career opportunities for certified athletic trainers are found in sports medicine/orthopedic clinics, universities, colleges, high schools and industrial settings. Historically, athletic trainers have worked with athletes in organized sports. In the traditional setting, the athletic trainer must work closely with the coaching staff, the team physician and the athlete to coordinate an effective rehabilitation program.

In recent years, the profession has branched out, and now athletic trainers provide services to recreational athletes and others injured due to physical activity, such as accidents in the workplace. Certified athletic trainers are employed by the military, Cirque du Soleil, Ford, Disneyland and other corporations to provide rehabilitation services to injured employees and to develop and implement prevention programs.
