"The profession of athletic training is an ideal career option for students interested in science, medicine, or allied health professions; have a love for sports; and interact well with people. Students must apply to the program independent of their major, usually during their first year on campus. As part of the program students must accumulate 800 clinical experience hours through the Sports Therapy Department, caring for and rehabilitating injured intercollegiate athletes on campus, traveling with teams and covering games. There are also many off-campus opportunities for students to expand on their experience and knowledge. Students completing the program are eligible to sit for the National Athletic Trainers' Association Board of Certification Exam to become Certified Athletic Trainers." Denise Alosa, Faculty
