About the PA Athletic Trainers Society

Athletic Trainers are multiskilled health care professionals who are college educated to provide services for those who are physically active. At this time, Athletic Trainers have a minimum of a bachelors degree from a four-year accredited institution; however, more than forty percent of nationally certified Athletic Trainers in Pennsylvania have masters or doctoral degrees. The education of Athletic Trainers is steeped heavily in the basic and applied sciences, such as chemistry, physics, biology, physiology, anatomy, psychology, and sociology. There also is a strong clinical internship requirement for all Athletic Training students, mandating experience under a nationally Certified Athletic Trainer. Pennsylvania boasts one of the highest number of accredited Athletic Training Programs in the nation (20).

What We Do...

P - Promote the profession of athletic training through public awareness and education.

A - Advocate the athletic trainer as recognized health care providers through continual legislative pursuits and stakeholder relationships.

T - Transact business on behalf of the Society’s membership in a prudent, effective, and collaborative manner.

S - Serve the membership by providing educational, research, scholarship, leadership, and networking opportunities.
