March is National Athletic Training Month
National Athletic Training Month is held every March in order to spread awareness about the important work of athletic trainers. The National Athletic Training Association (NATA) also hosts many engagement opportunities during the month-long celebration. The 2023 slogan is "There's an AT for That.”
Gannon University’s Master of Athletic Training program prepares students to deliver patient-centered health care through classroom and clinical education experiences. Students will study essential topics including injury prevention, clinical examination and diagnosis, acute care of injuries and illnesses, and more.
Gannon athletic training students are well prepared to sit for the national certification examination through the Board of Certification Inc. Athletic trainers work within a variety of health care settings including universities, hospitals and physician offices, industrial settings, performing arts, and more.
According to NATA, athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions. 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.
