The University of Idaho College of Education has outstanding Athletic Training Education Programs:
Bachelor of Science in Physical Education with major in Athletic Training, which prepares students to take the national Board of Certification exam and enter the profession of athletic training.
Beginning summer 2012 we will be offering an Entry-level Master’s Degree (MSAT). This program transitioned from Bachelor’s Degree AT program currently accredited through 2019, which prepares the students to become athletic trainers through preparation in prevention and health promotion, clinical examination and diagnosis, acute care of injury and illness, therapeutic interventions, psychosocial strategies and referral, health care administration, professional development and responsibility, evidence-based practice, and foundational behaviors of professional practice.
For Certified Athletic Trainers, we offer the nation’s first Advanced Clinical Doctorate in Athletic Training (DAT). It is an innovative two-year advanced practice degree that has been designed for practicing clinicians and focuses on improving clinical practice. The Doctorate of Athletic Training program is currently accepting students for a July 2, 2012 start date. Athletic trainers who prefer non-clinical research doctoral model may benefit from our Ph.D in Exercise Science program.
