New Athletic Training master's program to begin Summer 2021! Athletic Training at the University of Michigan will mean unparalleled access to the nation’s top researchers, medical practitioners, and clinical settings. At graduation, our students will be proficient in the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. Our curriculum will combine classroom instruction with hands-on clinical experiences and valuable mentorships. Through these experiences, the Athletic Training program will prepare students for a career as an athletic trainer in secondary schools, colleges, universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs, industrial settings, and other healthcare environments.
Students who complete this program will receive a Master of Science in Athletic Training degree and meet the requirements to sit for the Board of Certification Examination. Certification is required to practice athletic training in most states.
The University of Michigan Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program is currently applying to the CAATE for a change in the level of degree and is pending approval.
Winter 2020 marks the last cohort eligible for admission into the undergraduate program. The graduate program will begin accepting applications during the 2020-2021 academic year, with the first graduate cohort starting the program during the summer of 2021.
