What are Athletic Trainers?
Athletic Trainers are health care professionals who work under the direction of a physician and who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries (acute or chronic), sports-related illnesses and act as first responders to an emergency. Athletic trainers work in secondary schools, colleges, professional sports, clinics, hospitals, corporations, the military, and the performing arts.
