We aim for our residents to further their awareness in all aspects of sports medicine and to be able to work in a variety of clinical, surgical, research and educational settings.

We are one of seven programs in the country accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Many of our past athletic training residents have launched successful careers in athletic training following completion of our program.
