The College of Health Sciences (CHS) is very excited about this new major, which is joining the already established and respected programs of Nursing (BSN) and Physician Assistant (MSPAS). The brand new, state-of-the-art Athletic Training and Sports Medicine facility, located in the Vera Low Student Center, provides a wonderful environment for students to hone their skills. Bethel University’s Athletic Training Program is a comprehensive curriculum designed to culminate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training. Utilizing lecture, laboratory and clinical experiences, students will gain a thorough understanding of the athletic training profession. Dedicated professionals such as certified athletic trainers, physical therapists, physicians, nurses, physician assistants and other allied health care professionals will prepare and guide students for a successful career in a highly competitive field.
**The Athletic Training Program (AT Program) at Bethel University is in its implementation phase and expects to complete and submit its Self-Study to the Commission on the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) in the fall of 2014 with a site visit planned in the spring of 2015. At this time, Bethel University’s Athletic Training Program is not accredited by CAATE.
