About

Overview

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.
