Averett University’s athletic training curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in athletic training.  This curriculum stresses a strong liberal arts and science foundation with clinical and problem-solving development.  The major requires a pre-professional phase where students will be introduced to the clinical experiences that will be required in the curriculum.

The Averett University athletic training curriculum emphasizes clinical instruction which utilizes different clinical sites on and off campus including the Averett University athletic training room, sports medicine/physical therapy clinics and medical doctors’ offices. These settings will expose the student athletic trainer to different health professionals including certified athletic trainers, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, physical therapy assistants, and medical doctors. These diverse locations allow students to gain valuable experiences in a variety of athletic training settings.

The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
