Athletic Training

 

IMPORTANT CHANGES IN THE AT PROGRAM

The AT Program is no longer accepting students into the BSAT degree program.

TIMELINE
Our last class was selected in spring 2019. The AT program is in the planning a new MSAT professional preparation program. Our Notice of Intent has been approved and we are in the next steps in program development. Pending approval, we look forward to launching our new MSAT in the summer of 2021.

WHY?
This change is in response to changes nationally in AT Education. In May of 2015, the AT Strategic Alliance released an official statement recommending the elevation of the professional degree for athletic training to the master’s level. Consequently, the UW–Madison AT Program is suspending admission to the undergraduate AT program in the fall of 2019.

INTERESTED IN AT?
Students with an interest in the AT profession will have many opportunities to explore this interest. We will continue to offer Kinesiology 127, 197, and 227. We are also in the planning stages for a new certificate program related to Athletic Healthcare. Students who wish to pursue AT in the new MSAT program should strongly consider the Exercise and Movement Science degree program in Kinesology for their undergraduate major.

Please reach out to Andrew P. Winterstein PhD, ATC to learn more about these and other campus opportunities.

A HISTORY OF SUCCESS
The AT Program has a rich history of excellent career placement and BOC certification success. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and received a favorable continuing accreditation review in July 2006. The program is scheduled for another self-study and on-site review in 2015-2016.
