Our combined Exercise Science BS/Athletic Training MS program is designed to provide an expedited path to education in exercise science while completing a professional degree in athletic training.
Our mission is to prepare students to function as evidence-based clinicians in a dynamic health care environment. Through innovative interprofessional, clinical practice and didactic experiences, students will develop reflective clinical practice and critical reasoning skills to treat diverse populations.
Graduates will become clinicians focused on patient-centered care, life-long learners and leaders who are advocates for the profession and are committed to service.
An athletic trainer is a healthcare professional educated and experienced in the management of healthcare problems associated with sport and physcial exercise. In cooperation with physicians and other healthcare personnel, the athletic trainer functions as an important member of the healthcare team in schools, colleges, universities, professional sports programs, sports medicine clinics, and other healthcare settings.
The University at Buffalo is currently seeking accreditation for their new Athletic Training program and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the accreditation process on October 1, 2019.
