The University of Pittsburgh's well-established athletic training program prepares students in the prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries incurred by athletes and the physically active - skills important for a career in the multidisciplinary field of sports medicine.
Soon, a master’s degree will be required in order to become a certified athletic trainer. The University of Pittsburgh is committed to preparing athletic training students for professional practice and is actively seeking to develop programs to meet this requirement. Such programs are subject to approval by the Provost before students can be admitted.
