Overview

The Pre-professional Athletic Training program at Springfield College is designed to first introduce you to skills during highly structured lab settings, where you are able to learn and practice on classmates under the close supervision of the instructor. You’ll then have the opportunity to develop your skills with actual patients. 

And, you’ll learn it all in the classroom and through our athletic training facility, which will introduce you to the same types of tools and equipment you’ll be using throughout your career.

Clinical Experience

During their undergraduate experience, students in the athletic training major can expect to complete clinical experience under the direct supervision of Board of Certification-certified and Massachusetts licensed athletic trainers. This clinical experience is sequenced to facilitate learning of the theoretical and clinical competencies and problem-solving skills needed by the athletic trainer. 

The supervised clinical experiences take place in Springfield College athletic training rooms, as well as in off-campus, approved affiliate settings, including high schools and colleges.
