The Health Sciences (MSc in Athletic Training) program is offered by Thomas Jefferson University.

ATCs work with physically active individuals to help prevent injuries, offer advice about appropriate equipment, recognize and evaluate injuries, administer emergency treatment, and determine need for specialized medical care. ATCs are an integral part of the healthcare team and provide health care to individuals in the areas of injury prevention, evaluation, management and rehabilitation. 

The demand for ATC professionals is expected to grow significantly faster than the average occupation over the next 10 years in both traditional athletic settings, like high school, college, University, and professional-level sports; and non-traditional settings, like medical offices, emergency departments, industrial settings, and more. 

Graduates will have the knowledge and practical, clinical and professional experience for various athletic training positions, or can use their skills as a stepping-stone to other medical fields.
