Athletic Training

Athletic training is an allied health profession within the American Medical Association. Our mission is to enhance the quality of health care for the physically active through prevention, evaluation, management, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Certified athletic trainers are part of a Sports Medicine team approach of total medical care including the athlete, coaches, orthopedic physician and allied health medical specialists.

The faculty and staff have created a positive learning environment for all majors by fostering the development of the whole person: physical, psychological and spiritual. Direct supervision of majors in all clinical settings creates interactive opportunities for the continuous evaluation, development and positive re-enforcement of prudent athletic training skills.

Graduates of Xavier University's athletic training program receive a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree and are eligible to sit for the BOC exam.
