Athletic Training

A Link Between Academic Preparation and Experiential Learning

The Athletic Training Minor offers the ultimate real-life experience through the clinical preparation component supervised by Newberry’s Sports Medicine staff. Due to the nature of the clinical preparation, there is an application process to participate the clinical component. This minor is appropriate for students whose future plans include further education in an entry-level Athletic Training program or pre-professional programs such as pre-medical or pre-phyiscal therapy. This minor is designed to provide knowledge and skills of Athletic Training; however, it does not qualify students to sit for Board of Certification (BOC).  Please contact the National Athletic Trainer's Association (NATA) for more information about becoming a certified Athletic Trainer.
