Start a career in Sports Medicine
The Athletic Training Education program at Indiana Wesleyan University is committed to developing students as critical thinkers and competent practitioners. Earning a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Athletic Training from IWU will enable you to challenge the certification examination from the Board of Certification to become a certified athletic trainer. The program is accredited by CAATE, the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.
Graduates will be prepared to successfully practice as entry-level professionals in various allied health care settings related to athletic training and sports medicine. The opportunities in this field are diverse and promising. ATCs work in conjunction with physicians to clinically evaluate and diagnose injuries, prescribe rehab and implement preventative measures.
Depending on continuing education and credentials, your future career could include working as an athletic trainer for a specific team at any level of competition from high school to professional. Positions are also open at many sports performance training complexes and gyms. Job opportunities are also increasing in non-sports settings, as many top companies are seeking to prevent injuries before they happen in the industrial setting. Certified athletic trainers are increasing visible in physician's offices, serving as physician extenders.
Our program is committed to providing a quality clinical education in athletic training with a foundation stemming from a passion to see the world changed for Jesus Christ. If you love athletics and have a desire to assist in injury healing and rehabilitation, we invite you to explore IWU's Athletic Training Education program.
