Athletic Training is a healthcare profession that focuses on prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis and therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries and medical conditions. Certified athletic trainers work alongside other healthcare professionals and in a variety of settings including universities, high schools, professional sports, outpatient sports medicine clinics and industrial settings.  In 2010, U.S. News & World Report named athletic training as one of the 50 best careers.  

For more than 40 years, the University of Toledo has had an accredited undergraduate program, offering students the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills and abilities required of athletic trainers.  Through classroom, laboratory and clinically-based education experiences, students are introduced to the core concepts of sports medicine. 

Over the past 3 years, graduates of UT’s ATEP have posted an impressive 89% first time pass rate on the BOC exam, and a total pass rate of 95%.  An overwhelming number of students have gone on to pursue graduate degrees in athletic training or have been accepted into another professional healthcare program.
