Athletic Training Major (Athletic Training Concentration 74-75 credits including clinicals; Applied Medicine Concentration 74-76 credits including clinicals)

The bachelor of science degree in Athletic Training at ISU has two concentrations students can select from, applied medicine concentration (non-clinical) and a clinical concentration accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The coursework in the department emphasizes strong theoretical foundations within each of the areas of applied medicine and athletic training, as well as critical thinking and problem solving skills. Students also benefit from hands-on clinical education and/or classroom experiences with health care professionals.

Note:


Successful completion of the bachelor of science degree in athletic training clinical concentration, qualifies students to take the Board of Certification Examination. Emphasis of this athletic training curriculum is to provide students with classroom knowledge and clinical experiences that are appropriate for entry-level preparation as a certified athletic trainer.

Students engage in a competitive application process for entry into the professional component of the major. Matriculating students typically apply during the spring semester of their freshman year. Transfer students are encouraged to apply when they have completed or are enrolled in prerequisite course equivalents. Transfer students must provide evidence of equivalent course work (i.e. course descriptions, syllabi, evidence of competency completion). Prerequisite courses include Athletic Training 110, 202 (or proof of CPR/AED Certification), 210, 210L, 212, 212L, 225, and 280. Students must submit an application, evidence of job shadowing hours, current emergency cardiac care certification, physical examination, technical standards, immunization records (including Hepatitis B or waiver), confidentiality statement, and a copy of transcripts (for any coursework not at ISU). Students are financially responsible for expenses of the application accrued prior to admittance into the professional component of the program. After review of application documents, students interview with Athletic Training academic and clinical faculty. Formal acceptance into the professional component of the concentration requires a 2.75 cumulative grade point average and successful completion of prerequisite courses. Successful completion of a prerequisite course requires a grade of C or better.
