Lindenwood University offers a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training. Lindenwood University’s Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education, CAATE.
This program is designed to prepare athletic training students to succeed on the Board of Certification (BOC) examination and become a certified athletic trainer, ATC. The student must complete the required coursework and accumulate 1,210 clinical experience hours with an ATC and/or Clinical Instructor. During the students’ coursework and clinical rotations, they will successfully complete the National Athletic Trainers’ Association’s Educational Competencies and Clinical Proficiencies.
The ATEP at Lindenwood University is a competitive program requiring an application and interview for new applicants during the Spring Semester. Transfer students are accepted into the program but they must complete (or be in the process of completing) all entrance requirements to apply. Also, transfer students must complete an interview with the athletic training faculty and staff prior to beginning the fall semester. Once accepted into the program, transfer students will have a minimum of six semesters before graduation. This rigorous and intense program places specific requirements and demands on the students accepted in the program. All students are required to have a physical exam prior to admittance, and verify they understand and meet the technical standards or believe that, with certain accommodation, they can meet the standards to be accepted into the ATEP.
Once accepted, the athletic training students will assist in practice, game and athletic training room coverage. As a sophomore, junior, and senior, the athletic training students will be assigned to work with a specific team and must remain dedicated to the athletic training clinical schedule provided by the student’s supervising athletic trainer. Students may also have the opportunity to travel to events with teams and assist the supervising certified athletic trainer. With over forty athletic programs, athletic training students obtain extensive experience with various sports including men’s & women’s, non-contact & equipment intensive, and individual & team sports. Also, as a senior, the athletic training students will have the opportunity to complete three internships in various athletic training settings. Transportation and expenses associated with all internships will be the responsibility of the student.
