Oregon State University has a long history of preparing students for a career in athletic training. The undergraduate Athletic Training Program at Oregon State University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and has been continuously accredited since 1974. The program is in the process of transitioning to a graduate, professional program. The first cohort of graduate students began the program in the summer of 2016. The second cohort of will begin in the summer of 2017. As part of the transition, admission to the undergraduate program has been suspended and no additional undergraduate students will be admitted. The program is currently applying to the CAATE for a change in level of degree.

The Athletic Training curriculum at Oregon State University will prepare you to become an athletic trainer. As an athletic trainer, you will collaborate with physicians to provide preventive services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.

Students who successfully complete a degree in Athletic Training are eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination. BOC certification (ATC) establishes the entry-level credential to work as an athletic trainer. Athletic trainers work in a variety of settings, including:

  • Colleges and universities
  • High schools
  • Sports medicine clinics
  • Physician’s offices and hospitals
  • Professional sports teams
  • Corporate and industrial settings

OSU students graduating from the athletic training program have been very successful on the BOC examination.
