The Athletic Training Program is designed to enable students to demonstrate, in the classroom and during clinical experiences, that they have achieved levels of comprehension, competency, and proficiency expected of entry-level athletic trainers. UCF is committed to the idea that professional education requires sound academic preparation that is enriched by clinical experiences.
The program’s classroom component is divided into several components: foundational courses, athletic training theory and practice, and clinical experiences. The courses are designed to expose students to information through multiple didactic, laboratory and clinical experiences. These courses incorporate the content required to establish the foundational behaviors of professional practice and the Curricular Content Standards set forth by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
All students are required to complete the curriculum in the established sequence of courses.
Program faculty believe in providing students with enriching educational experiences that foster personal growth, communication skills, critical thinking skills and professional ethics. By combining excellence in teaching, the latest technologies available in education and outstanding clinical site affiliations, graduates of the program are fully prepared to take and pass the comprehensive Board of Certification (BOC) exam and start their careers as athletic trainers.
UCF’s Athletic Training Program was established in 1998 as a baccalaureate program. Accreditation was officially granted in 2002. The program continues to maintain full accreditation through the CAATE through 2026-2027.
The mission of the AT Program is to prepare students to contribute to the health and welfare of the community as competent and proficient athletic trainers.
