About the Program

The undergraduate Athletic Training education program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The goals of the program are to prepare students as entry-level athletic trainers through an extensive curriculum of didactic and clinical experiences and to prepare students to sit for and pass the Board of Certification (BOC) exam. Some Athletic Training students choose to pursue graduate or professional school (physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), physician’s assistant (PA), etc.). The program consists of academic coursework offered by the Department of Health & Kinesiology and clinical education experiences with the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (ICA), the Division of Recreational Sports (RSC), and the Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH), as well as several off-campus sites. Purdue is a member of the Big Ten Conference and offers 9 men’s and 9 women’s sports at the NCAA Division 1 level.

Note: Athletic Training is a selective program. Students begin in Pre-Athletic Training in the fall semester and apply to the professional program during the spring semester. Admittance to the Athletic Training Professional Program is required to continue in the Athletic Training major. For additional information see: http://www.purdue.edu/hhs/hk/undergraduate/majors/.
