Athletic Training is an allied health profession that is recognized by the American Medical Association. Certified Athletic Trainers, under the supervision of a licensed physician, provide care for athletes and those who are physically active within six areas of clinical practice: prevention; recognition, evaluation, and assessment; treatment, rehabilitation, and reconditioning; organization and administration; and professional development and responsibility. Athletic Trainers are specialists in the area of sports medicine; sports medicine is a general term that refers to a very broad scope of care and services that are necessary to maintain the overall health and performance of those who are physically active or who participate in sports.
"The Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) is a highly educated and skilled professional specializing in athletic health care. In cooperation with physicians and other allied health personnel, the ATC functions as an integral member of the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs and other athletic health care settings."
