      What is Athletic Taining?

      Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients. Athletic training encompasses injury/illness prevention, clinical evaluation, emergency care, and treatment and rehabilitation of acute/chronic medical conditions. The mission of the Athletic Training Services is to prevent, manage, and rehabilitate athletic injuries. In addition, the goal is to help these students to return to play in a safe manner and as soon as possible.
