The Athletic Training program is currently not accepting applications for the admission to the undergraduate Athletic Training program. However, the School of Health Technology and Management, Stony Brook University is developing a graduate Athletic Training program proposal. Please check with the program for updates.
The Athletic Training Program is challenging and rewarding. The curriculum begins with general education including four pre-requisite courses specific to Athletic Training. Students who are admitted into the program then begin the comprehensive professional preparation phase which is directed toward the development of specified competencies dealing with injuries and conditions. I encourage you to review the coursework for further information. The Athletic Training Student will have the opportunity to develop applied technical and clinical skills, analytical problem solving and incorporate evidence based practice in a patient centered environment. In addition, students gain valuable hands-on experience with NCAA Division I athletics, work alongside physicians, organize original research projects and mentor underclassmen.
We are excited to announce some changes effective for the 2014 admission cycle. If you have reviewed our information prior to June 21, 2013 please take the time to review it again as our pre-requistes have changed! In addition, beginning in the fall of 2013 we instituted a Freshman Declared four-year major! Lastly, our program coursework reflects the new SB Curriculum, effective fall 2014.
Good luck in your educational pursuits. If we can be of any additional assistance in answering questions you may have please feel free to contact us.
