We are in the process of transitioning our undergraduate Athletic Training Program to a Master’s in Athletic Training. As a result of this transition, we will be phasing out our undergraduate Athletic Training Program. Subsequently, the 2015-16 academic year will be the last year we will be accepting application for any student who is interested in the undergraduate athletic training program.
The Franklin College Athletic Training Program is an accredited curriculum program through the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE – www.caate.net). The Franklin College AT Program is a blend of academic preparation, practical application, and personal attention and is designed to prepare students for competitive health care careers. The clinically focused, competitive AT Program carefully leads students through incremental and sequenced classes designed to provide solid evidence based knowledge combined with hands-on practical experience. Numerous clinical rotations complement course work throughout the three-year professional athletic training sequence and provide a solid foundation of professional development experiences. Diverse athletic training clinical settings in the Franklin, Greenwood, Columbus, and Indianapolis areas offer unique opportunities for educational advancement.
Athletic trainers are highly-qualified health care professionals who are trained in the prevention, recognition, management and rehabilitation of injuries occurring to physically active individuals. As part of a collaborative health care team, athletic trainers work under the direction of physicians and work collaboratively with other health care professions to provide comprehensive care and treatment. Students who want to become a certified athletic trainer must obtain a bachelor’s degree from a CAATE accredited athletic training education program.
