Athletic Training

The mission of the Anderson University Athletic Training Program is to prepare students, within a Christian, liberal arts tradition, as health care professionals for a lifetime of service to athletes and physically active individuals.

An athletic trainer is a highly qualified health care professional who specializes in prevention, recognition, management, and rehabilitation of injuries that result from physical activity. As a part of a complete health care team, the certified athletic trainer works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches, and parents. Students who want to become certified athletic trainers must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training program. Our program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).

Not only will Anderson University prepare you for the certification exam, our ATEP will also prepare you for a life of professional service to physically active individuals. Come join a growing and continually advancing program and start your career in a rewarding allied health profession.
