What is an Athletic Trainer?

Certified athletic trainers (ATCs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians and serve as a critical link between athletic programs, emergency medical services, and the medical community. Certified athletic trainers work under the direction of a licensed physician and provide various services to the physically active. Their primary responsibilities include injury prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions, organization and administration, education, and counseling.
