Indiana Wesleyan University’s Athletic Training Education program provides traditional athletic training services in support of the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional needs of all University athletes. Our program is committed to world changing and servanthood, a high standard of care, and Christian development. The program is accredited by CAATE, the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.
This is the beginning level in the Athletic Training Education program. First-year majors achieve this status by declaring Athletic Training as a major and enrolling in the beginning classes in the Athletic Training curriculum.
To achieve this status, second-, third-, and fourth-year students must be accepted through an official application process. They become progressively more active in the program as proper experience and knowledge are gained. These students are assigned certain responsibilities based on their knowledge, skill level, and attitude.
Indiana Wesleyan University offers clinical experience in the following athletic areas:

Our students have the unique opportunity to participate in two internship experiences in a physician’s office and hospital, where they will observe and participate in the daily operations of a physician’s daily practice and work with a variety of injuries and conditions.
Our students may also obtain clinical hours under the supervision of a certified athletic trainer at a local high school.
Our students have the opportunity to work with neighboring Taylor University’s sports programs, primarily football. This unique experience can give the student an appreciation for the differences in how universities deliver athletic training services.
Our students have the opportunity to gain general medical experience through the IWU Health Center and Bridges to Health, Inc. This experience presents a wide range of potential conditions and illnesses that may not be experienced or identified in traditional athletic training settings.
Our program currently operates three athletic training rooms that provide ample opportunities for our students to practice their developing skills.
