MS in Athletic Training
The proposed MSAT degree will be a cohort-based, entry-level professional program designed to prepare graduates for the Texas Advisory Board of Athletic Trainers’ licensure exam and the Board of Certification Inc. (BOC) examination, leading to a career in the health care profession of athletic training.
The didactic, laboratory, and clinical components of the program will be structured around the 5th edition of the NATA Athletic Training Education Competencies, which address the following content areas:
- Evidence-Based Practice
- Prevention and Health Promotion
- Clinical Examination and Diagnosis
- Acute Care of Injury and Illness
- Therapeutic Interventions
- Psychosocial Strategies and Referral
- Healthcare Administration
- Professional Development and Responsibility
All students are required to complete five semesters (two fall, two spring, and one summer) of clinical education experiences in an athletic training, sports medicine, or other medical setting under the supervision of a program approved health care provider.
