What is an Athletic Trainer?
The National Athletic Trainers’ Association defines athletic trainers as highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals specifically trained in the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical conditions and emergent, acute and chronic injuries. \Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA), Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an allied health care profession. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes. The NATA Code of Ethics states the principles of ethical behavior that should be followed in the practice of athletic training.
Athletic Trainers are often confused with personal trainers. There is, however, a large difference in the education, skillset, job duties and patients of an athletic trainer versus a personal trainer. The athletic training academic curriculum and clinical training follows a medical model with immersive practice and hands on training. Athletic trainers must graduate from an accredited master’s program and pass the BOC to practice in the United States. Athletic trainers also are required to maintain their licenses by completing 50 hours of continuous education every two years to provide the high-quality care to their patient population.
