Athletic Training Education

Faculty, Staff & Medical Team

Collectively, the academic and clinical professionals that makeup our Athletic Training Education program in the Department of Exercise & Sport Sciences represent almost 300 years of collective academic, professional and clinical experiences in athletic training and sports medicine that cover the gamut of related skills, knowledge and perspectives. Together, we possess significant professional experiences at high schools, physical therapy clinics, sports performance domains, research laboratories, colleges and universities, and professional sports -- a combination that provides an unsurpassed advantage for preparing students to enter the myriad professional work settings available to athletic trainers today. Equally important, all athletic training faculty at Ithaca are fully committed to every aspect of your educational program and critical development in the didactic and clinical settings, and conduct meaningful and applicable clinical research projects, many times in concert with our students.

All faculty/staff members teach core athletic training classes and work as clinical instructors in order to ensure continuity, comprehensiveness and interactive clarity between the various aspects of the program. As an athletic training major, you will also have one of our 7 full time faculty members as your formal academic advisor. Additionally, our team physicians teach classes, conduct injury roundtables and evaluation clinics, and supervise our students during clinical experiences -- you'll get to know them quite well after 3 years of clinical involvement!

Additionally, the certified athletic trainers, graduate athletic trainers, and undergraduate athletic training students provide medical coverage for the 25 intercollegiate athletic programs at Ithaca College. IC's athletic programs have won multiple NCAA Division III national championships, and remain extremely competitive at the regional and national levels--so our students' clinical education is exciting, challenging, and rewarding.
