WHAT IS AN ATHLETIC TRAINER?
Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients across age and care continuums. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, clinical assessment and intervention of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a licensed physician.
The Athletic Training Facility is located in Murdock Stadium (Northeast side).
The Athletic Training Facility is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Weekend hours are determined by individual sports.
