How do I know if athletic training is for me?

  • Do I want to be involved in the medical side of sports?
  • Do I want to learn about assessing, treating and rehabilitating sports injuries?
  • Do I like a hands-on major?
  • Do I enjoy applied medical sciences?
  • Do I want a major that will challenge me?
  • Am I looking for an undergraduate major to prepare me for graduate school (athletic training, physical therapy, physician assistant)?
  • Do I want a major in which I can practice and demonstrate my knowledge on a daily basis in a real-world setting?
  • Am I interested in learning how to communicate better with other health care professionals?
If you answered yes to many of these questions, athletic training may be the profession for you!
