The Athletic Training (AT) Graduate Program at Slippery Rock University is a combination of rigorous academic instruction and authentic clinical experience. The AT Graduate Program will prepare proficient health care practitioners who will collaborate with other medical professionals to optimize the activity and wellness of patients and clients in sport, work, and life. Students will learn the science of athletic training with a focus on patient-centered injury and illness prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, return to activity, and exercise as medicine.
The AT Graduate Program is guided by the athletic training education competencies as well as the core program values of professionalism, respect, compassion, interprofessional education, evidence-based practice and student-centered learning. Students will develop communication, decision-making, analytical, and altruistic skills necessary for proficient practice with a diverse population. Students will need to possess select pre-requisite knowledge, emergency care certification, and health and criminal clearances before beginning the program.
Students successfully completing the AT Graduate Program are eligible to take the Board of Certification (BOC), Inc. examination. Graduates who pass the BOC examination will be qualified to deliver quality healthcare in various employment settings (e.g. high schools, colleges, professional sports, industrial, military and performing arts), and will contribute to the global medical community by reducing healthcare costs, improving healthcare accessibility, preventing and managing diseases, and promoting wellness. Individuals holding the BOC credential or are eligible to take the BOC certification examination are not candidates for the AT Graduate Program.
