What is a Certified Athletic Trainer?
Certified athletic trainers are health care professionals who specialize in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. As part of a complete health care team, the certified athletic trainer works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches and parents.
Athletic Trainers are recognized by AMA (American Medical Association) as an allied health care profession since 1990.
