This graduate program is designed to meet the needs of students who are creative, self-motivated and who possess a clear vision of their goals and aspirations.
Success in this program demands solid undergraduate preparation in athletic training and the supporting disciplines of anatomy, physiology, biology, chemistry, and physics.
Please take a moment to look through our program goals.
If you are a certified athletic trainer and interested in pursuing a challenging academic program, complemented by hands-on athletic training experiences and an opportunity to work and study with great people, this program may well be the perfect fit for you.
Our mission is to facilitate the development of athletic training professionals with advanced clinical skills, who ask and seek answers to unique scholarly questions via original research as they integrate new knowledge into their evolving clinical philosophy. The result is clinicians who self assess, critically evaluate new ideas, think creatively, and integrate scientific evidence into clinical practice.

You should apply if you are a certified athletic trainer (or will be by August) who has strong academic, clinical and personal skills and is looking for advanced education in your field. We are looking for applicants with strong written and verbal communication skills, who are independent and critical thinkers, and who work well with other people both in the classroom and in the athletic training room... Being nice and funny is always an added plus.
Be sure to look carefully through our applications procedures and ensure that your completed application has reached us by December 15th, for the upcoming Fall term.
