Athletic Training


The University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Athletic Training (AT) Program is accredited by The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) through 2018. Students who successfully complete this 49 credit hour entry-level graduate degree program will earn a Master of Science in Athletic Training (M.S.A.T.) degree and will be eligible to register and take the Board of Certification , Inc. (BOC) certifying examination. The AT Program is scheduled for a comprehensive accreditation review in the 2017-2018 academic year.

The mission of the AT Program is to integrate evidence-based education and practice to develop clinicians capable of advancing the quality of healthcare for athletes and physically active individuals.

Overview of the AT Program:

 

The UNCG AT Program meets the educational needs of each student in the Program. We strive to focus on the student as an individual versus the class, allowing students to correct their weaknesses and enhance their strengths. The Program accomplishes this educational directive through quality evidence-based instruction, individualized clinical rotations, and clinical integrated rehabilitation capstone projects. Our educational model allows AT students to apply knowledge and skills to real-life clinical problems, facilitating students’ ability to make clinical decisions. This component of the AT students’ education also is strengthened by the clinical integrated rehabilitation project, which requires students to perform rehabilitation on a real-life patient and then present the project as a case study. We believe the problem solving skills developed in the curriculum, clinical education, and rehabilitation project contribute to our students’ ability to excel in passing the BOC examination. More importantly, however, our students graduate from the Program having made clinical decisions and having performed real-life rehabilitations, which sets our students up immediately for a successful AT career.
