The athletic training program at King University has voluntarily withdrawn their accreditation
and is no longer admitting students. The date of voluntary withdrawal of accreditation
coincides with the graduation of the last cohort in May 2020. If you are interested in pursuing athletic training in graduate school, please contact
Scott Landis (email@example.com) for more information on the appropriate bachelor’s degree preparation.
King University is excited to introduce a new program in Exercise Science. Exercise Science is an ideal pathway to many graduate school opportunities, including
a Master’s in Athletic Training. Click here or here for more information.
Athletic Training is gaining popularity in colleges across the nation. At King University,
the Athletic Training Program is a three-year program, fully accredited by CAATE, which
requires application and acceptance into the program. King University’s Athletic Training
Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education
(CAATE). The program has been placed on Probation as of February 19, 2016 by the CAATE,
6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3101. The program is designed
to give students the knowledge and experience necessary to pursue a career in athletic
training. The courses in the program include lecture and clinical experiences so
the students receive opportunities to learn the skills required to pass the Board
of Certification (BOC) exam and to become a certified athletic trainer in a traditional
employment or graduate school position.
The role of the certified athletic trainer has expanded exponentially over the past
decade. You can now find athletic trainers not only on the sports field, but also
in the military, medical clinics, hospitals, physicians’ offices, industrial facilities,
and in the performing arts. Athletic trainers provide medical and allied health care
services to a variety of populations in diversified settings.
One of the unique aspects of King’s Athletic Training Program is the senior clinical
internship program. Senior athletic training students complete a 500 hour clinical
internship during the last semester of their senior year. During this internship
students have the opportunity to experience what the job setting for their particular
preceptor is like every day for the entire semester. Students are matched to clinical
sites and preceptors who are closely aligned with their professional goals.
Once Athletic Training students pass the BOC, they are then qualified to seek employment
as certified athletic trainer in a variety of disciplines such as secondary schools,
colleges and universities, professional athletic teams, sports medicine clinics, industrial
clinics, orthopedic offices, wellness facilities, and education. Students may also
pursue graduate school opportunities with additional coursework to complete prerequisites
for programs such as exercise science, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician's
assistant, education, or other related fields.
