An athletic trainer collaborates with physicians to optimize the activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, first aid, and rehabilitation of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions. The athletic training major has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) since 1991 and prepares professionals qualified to attend to the athlete, the fitness-conscious jogger, the skilled professional athlete, or anyone engaged in physical activity.
Students must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in all KIN-required courses and BMS 507-508.
Students gain clinical experience in University Athletics and Campus Recreation and at off-campus clinical sites. Successful completion of the entire program, including supervised clinical experience, qualifies students to take the Board of Certification (BOC) certification exam. Students who wish to pursue both BOC certification and public school teacher certification also should see the Department of Kinesiology pedagogy option. This double course of study will require between five and six years.
Students are admitted to the University in athletic training with conditional status. Specific competitive criteria must be met during the student’s first year before he or she may apply for full-time status in the major, which is awarded only to students demonstrating exemplary performance in classes and directed observation. Detailed criteria may be found at www.chhs.unh.edu/kin_at/admission_at.html. Additionally, technical standards establish the qualities considered necessary for students to achieve the knowledge, skills, and competencies associated with the program. Candidates for full-time status will be required to verify they understand and meet these technical standards or that, with reasonable accommodation, they can meet them. Interested students should consult with program coordinator, Dan Sedory, regarding entry criteria and the technical standards.
Students in athletic training complete KIN 718, Career Preparation in Athletic Training, as the capstone course for the major. This course is designed to provide students with a means to integrate and augment concepts, skills, and knowledge gained in all previously-completed major course requirements. Prerequisites include KIN 665, sections A-D.
