What is Athletic Training?

Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities. Students who want to become certified athletic trainers must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training curriculum. Accredited programs include formal instruction in areas such as injury/illness prevention, first aid and emergency care, assessment of injury/illness, human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic modalities, and nutrition. Classroom learning is enhanced through clinical education experiences. More than 70 percent of certified athletic trainers hold at least a master’s degree. (www.nata.org)

The Athletic Training Progam at UMD:

The Athletic Training Program at UMD consists of a six semester didactic and clinical education program and is a stand-alone major housed in the department of Health, Physical Education & Recreation.

Students will enter and progress through the program as a cohort. A maximum of 16 students per year are accepted into the program. All applicants must have met the entrance requirements and be accepted/enrolled at UMD prior to admission into the program.

While progressing through their educational experience, students will have the opportunity to gain invaluable clinical experiences at one of our affiliated sites within the greater Duluth area. These sites include area high schools, industrial athletic training settings, general medical offices, and NCAA division I, II, and III intercollegiate athletic teams at the University of Minnesota Duluth, College of St. Scholastica, and the University of Wisconsin - Superior.
