Athletic Trainer
By Jennifer Kenny

1     Think of your favorite baseball or football team. Who works to prevent injuries and reconditions the athletes if injuries do occur? Athletic trainers do.
2     Think of a large high school. Who aims to prevent and care for injuries in this secondary school setting? Who might even teach a few classes? An athletic trainer does.
3     Think of a large corporate office. Perhaps there's a workout room for employees in the building. Who might supervise a workout program, oversee employees' workouts, and educate workers about health, nutrition, and exercise? An athletic trainer might.
4     Athletic trainers in any setting have three main responsibilities. They try to prevent injuries. Second of all, if injuries occur, they need to recognize them, evaluate them, and care for them. Finally, they help rehabilitate and recondition those who are recovering from injuries.
5     Athletic trainers need to study at a four-year college to receive a bachelor's degree in the field. Some go on to study for two additional years. Their studies include injury prevention, medical conditions, risk management, exercise, health care administration, pharmacology, body composition, human anatomy, rehabilitation techniques, therapeutic modalities, medical ethics, psychology, and legal issues. Their studies include a great deal of clinical experience. Almost all states require athletic trainers to be certified by the Board of Certification. They need to pass a three part test (written, written simulation, and practical). Then they receive the status of ATC (Athletic Trainer, Certified).
