You want the skills and knowledge you need to help care for injured or ill athletes, but you also want a Christ-centered education. You’ll find that in the Athletic Training program at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
During your sophomore year, you’ll begin clinical rotations in areas such as orthopedic surgery, athletics, general medical experience and outpatient rehabilitation. You’ll have opportunities to work with athletic teams not only at PBA, but also at local high schools and other colleges and universities.
The program, which began in 2000, is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.
