The Master of Athletic Training program consists of 60 credit hours which are inclusive of the latest research, knowledge, and techniques, as well as all required NATA Athletic Training Education Competencies in the following areas:

  • Evidence-based practice,
  • Prevention and health promotion,
  • Clinical examination and diagnosis,
  • Acute care of injury and illness,
  • Therapeutic interventions,
  • Psychosocial strategies and referral,
  • Healthcare administration, and
  • Professional development and responsibility.

The program is designed to provide structured didactic (classroom) and supervised practice experiences to prepare a student for an entry-level position in athletic training. Didactic courses are sequenced and integrated to maximize student learning. The purpose of supervised practice courses is to provide a structured clinical experience in which to prepare for professional practice and engage in professional socialization.

Throughout the Master of Athletic Training program, supervised practice courses provide direct patient care opportunities for a variety of injuries and patient populations including contact (high risk) and non-contact sports, male and female patients, upper extremity and lower extremity injuries, sport and non-sport settings, and general medical conditions.

Clinical Experience

Students gain clinical experience in the following settings:

  • Collegiate: The University of Tulsa, an NCAA Division I university that competes in the American Athletic Conference, and; Oral Roberts University, an NCAA Division I university that competes in the Summit League;
  • Various local high schools including Union, Owasso, Cascia Hall, and Broken Arrow;
  • Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center, a local sports medicine clinic;
  • American Airlines maintenance facility, an industrial setting,
  • General medical, through rotations with sports medicine fellows and through the on-site health clinic; and
  • Other special events as available. 

In all clinical rotations, students are supervised by BOC certified and Oklahoma licensed athletic trainers. Most students work one on one with their preceptor in the clinical setting.

Athletic training students also gain experience with emergency situations and general medical conditions through clinical simulation scenarios which utilize METIMan, a high fidelity human patient simulator, in our simulation center.
