Athletic Training back to programs

Be an expert on the field.

Athletic training majors share a few central qualities: a drive to perform at the highest standard, a spirit of compassion for those around them, and a desire to integrate their faith with the healing process. We will train you in injury prevention, rehabilitation, immediate care, and professional responsibility as you prepare to hit the ground running as an athletic trainer.

CAREERS & INTERNSHIPS

Understanding bone and muscle structure will only take you so far… you need hands-on experience to make the theoretical become a practical reality. As an Athletic Training major, you will have the chance to interact with certified athletic trainers in professional settings through your required internship. Many of our students have interned at AthletiCo, Illinois Bone and Joint Institute, Lake County High Schools, Accelerated Rehab , and Chicago Rush Arena Football. In addition to your internship, you will be able to put your skills to the test by working with TIU’s athletic department.
