Welcome to the Department of Athletic Training!
The Athletic Training Program at Methodist University is a Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) accredited undergraduate educational program. The program is designed to prepare students for the professional opportunities as BOC Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC). Students accepted into the program will be working toward either a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. One recent program graduate was the recipient of the prestigious Sears Director's Cup Scholarship, a highly competitive award given to post graduate students with outstanding academic achievements while another received an NCAA Minority Post-Graduate Scholarship.
Methodist University is very fortunate to have six Certified Athletic Trainers on staff, a great advantage at the NCAA Division III level of athletics. In addition, students in the program will receive individual didactic and clinical instruction in both the classroom and in the athletic training facility from the staff as well as advising and instruction from the Athletic Training Program's director.
Athletic training students gain valuable experience working with the athletes and coaches of the Monarchs nineteen NCAA Division III varsity athletic programs, many of which are nationally ranked and are perennial USA South Athletic Conference powers. Each student is assigned to a certified athletic training staff member for individualized clinical education in a variety of athletic settings. Athletic training students are expected to attend all practices and home events as assigned by the supervising certified athletic trainer.
All students in the Athletic Training Program are encouraged to become members of the Methodist University Student Athletic Trainers Association and the NATA.
