Department of Allied Health Professions

Athletic Training

Athletic training is an allied health profession dedicated to prevention, care, and rehabilitation of injuries in physically active people. Athletic trainers work with physicians and other members of the sports medicine team to help injured athletes return safely to their sports. The mission of our program is to provide students with the necessary academic and clinical background that will allow them to become certified by the Board of Certification (BOC) upon graduation (at this time, fewer than ten graduates have attempted and none passed this exam).  The majority of our graduates have continued on to graduate school for special education, recreation management, physical therapy, or other non-related fields.  The Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) at Shaw University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) (probationary status pending site report and visit in 2014). Our program is one of only two accredited programs housed at HBCUs in the United States.

During this four-year program in athletic training, student participate in six practicum experiences, at Shaw University and affiliated sites area the area. This exposes students to a variety of health care professionals and diverse patient populations. 

Students are responsible for additional fees to cover the required CPR certification course.
