What Is a Certified Athletic Trainer?

A certified athletic trainer (ATC) is a highly skilled and nationally certified allied health professional. Athletic trainers work with physicians and other medical professionals to provide medical care for acute and chronic injuries for all levels of athletes, from elite to recreational. Certified athletic trainers have, at minimum, a bachelor’s degree, usually in athletic training. Athletic trainers study human anatomy and physiology, rehabilitation, biomechanics, exercise physiology, athletic training, nutrition, sport psychology, and therapeutic modalities. They are required to undergo extensive training in clinical and professional settings. This education and training allows the certified athletic trainer to administer immediate emergency medical care, as well as, develop and implement treatment plans for injuries under the direction of a team physician. A large focus of the athletic trainer is prevention of injuries and overall conditioning of the athlete.
