This innovative MSAT program boasts a hybrid of online and on-campus instruction over a 24-month period. The University of Idaho MSAT program includes 10 weeks of intensive on-campus instruction each summer followed by clinical rotations in the fall and spring. During the clinical rotations, online course work is delivered with the goal of developing each student's academic competence and clinical practice skills. Clinical rotations are currently being designed in a wide variety of athletic training clinical practice settings across the nation. This unique delivery provides access to expert clinical instructors while allowing students to build networks throughout Idaho and across the country.
Current or prospective University of Idaho students should enquire about the 3 + 2 option (currently being developed) which allows students to major in Exercise Science and Health in the Pre-Athletic Training track for the first three years at the UI. Students then apply to the MSAT program during their Junior year and if accepted begin the MSAT program their senior year. This type of innovative program is what continues to make the University of Idaho a great value!
