Athletic Training

Athletic Training is an allied health field recognized by the American Medical Association. Certified Athletic Trainers specialize in the prevention, recognition/evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, and reconditioning of injuries due to physical activity.

Soon, a master’s degree will be required in order to become an athletic trainer. The University of Tulsa is committed to preparing athletic training to students for professional practice and is proud to offer two degree options for students interested in Athletic Training:
