Welcome to the Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) at the Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences (CHCS). As an athletic training student, you will embark on an educational journey that can and will create job opportunities in the allied health profession, provide hands-on learning experiences in sport, and create a new vision.
The MSAT is challenging and rewarding as clinical experiences compliment didactic coursework. As your skills advance, you will have an opportunity to contribute to the health care of physically active individuals in settings such as clinical, university, high school, and professional. This demanding education program requires passion, dedication, and commitment as you strive to achieve your professional goals.
A Certified Athletic Trainer must be knowledgeable in all the domains of practice including: prevention of athletic injuries; recognition, evaluation, and assessment; immediate care of injuries, treatment, rehabilitation, and reconditioning; organization and administration; and professional development and responsibility. This knowledge provides the certified athletic trainer with the skills and ability to provide medical care of athletes of all ages and levels of talent.
