Exercise Science and Athletic Training

Hands-on educational experiences to complement your classroom learning.

Athletic Training Majors

Student's clinical education occurs on campus working directly with the highly competitive and accomplished Bombers Athletics Program, winners of 15 Division III National Championships and numerous individual National Champions. Other locally-based clinical rotations for each athletic training student occur at Ithaca College, Cornell University, Ithaca High School, Cornell/Gannett Physical Therapy, Cayuga Medical Center, local orthopedic physician offices, the Ithaca College Hammond Health Center, and a nearby hospital-based medical center where numerous professionals are contracted to provide care for high school athletes.
