Dear Friends, Colleagues, Students, and Alumni:

Andrew Winterstein

Thank you for visiting the web home of our new Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program. The Master’s degree in Athletic Training is a 24-month professional program that provides rigorous and comprehensive preparation for students seeking a health care career in athletic training.

The Athletic Training Education Program is dedicated to offering a program that prepares leaders in athletic training. We prepare evidence driven, socially responsible, and culturally competent healthcare providers ready to work in a variety of practice settings. The program uses a variety of student-centered learning opportunities to develop the kind of critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making skills that are required for contemporary practice in AT.

Our program stands on the shoulders of many alumni and friends who promote the Wisconsin Idea and represent our program from coast to coast living the Wisconsin Idea. Through their generosity we are able to offer a range of scholarships, support continuing education, and explore creative ways to engage learners.  As we transition to a new AT Program format, we will never forget our past successes as we build upon our rich history so that we will always be a program that makes our alumni proud.

Above all the most important component of the AT Program is our students. In my opinion we attract the best and the brightest collection of dedicated learners in the country. As we move forward our goal is to always maintain the highest standards of excellence befitting of the UW-Madison.

Thank you for visiting our site. I encourage our alumni and friends to visit the Athletic Training Community page often and to follow us on social media. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Always, On Wisconsin!
