Athletic Training Program
Welcome from the Program Director
Welcome to the Athletic Training Program at Saint Louis University!
SLU is a great place to pursue a career in Athletic Training! Consistent with the mission of Saint Louis University, the Athletic Training Program pursues truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity through teaching, research and community service. The students and faculty of the program are advocates for the profession of Athletic Training and seek to live, study and work in the Jesuit tradition. Go to SLU's tradition and mission page to get more information.
We are proud to be in SLU's Doisy College of Health Sciences, where the Athletic Training Program is situated as a peer among highly regarded and accredited health professions programs. The shared resources and the interprofessional nature of SLU's Medical Center campus create a broad experience for our students. Go to the interprofessional education page to get more information.
I consider the academic and clinical experience of this program to be on par with other top Athletic Training Programs in the country. Evidence of the quality of this experience is our excellent first time pass rate (100%) on the Board of Certification Examination, and the successful job placement rate of our graduates. Go to our program outcomes page to get more information.
We gained accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) in 2010. Five faculty members serve as the core faculty of our program. Highly regarded physicians and athletic trainers from the Saint Louis area also serve as adjunct faculty and clinical instructors. Courses in Gross Anatomy, Medical Imaging, Sports Psychology and Exercise Physiology are taught by other highly respected faculty members at Saint Louis University. Go to our program faculty page to get more information.
The wide range and diversity of our clinical sites are a strong part of our program. We have a variety of clinical sites which include colleges, high schools, professional sports organizations and private sports medicine clinics. The classroom, lab, and research spaces in the Doisy College of Health Sciences are also top-notch. Go to our clinical sites page to get more information.
