Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals employed in a variety of professional settings
who strive to deliver the most advanced, evidence-based, comprehensive, and personalized
health care services for the continued optimal performance of each physically active
patient. ATs utilize the professional opinions and experience of established medical
professionals and athletic training research to create a personalized approach to
the care each patient receives.
The USC AT Program provides students with experiences with a variety of patient populations,
care providers, and healthcare settings. You will find Gamecock Athletic Training
Alumni all over the world, including the NFL, MLB, NBA, US Military, NASCAR, Cirque
du Soleil, NCAA collegiate athletics, high schools in China and Europe, as well as
more traditional settings in secondary schools, sports medicine clinics, hospitals,
and industrial settings in the United States.
We currently offer both a Professional Athletic Training Program and a Master of Science
in Advanced AT.
