Welcome to the Athletic Training Program at the University of South Florida! We are excited that you have expressed an interest in the profession of Athletic Training, and even more so that you have chosen to be part of our inaugural class of our Master’s level Professional program at USF. The move to a Master of Science in Athletic Training further positions our graduates to become integral members of the health care team. You may have many questions about our new program following this transition, so please refer to the tabs at the left for further information.
Our Athletic Training Program is one of only a few, nationwide, to be anchored within a medical college. It is also the first program of its kind in the country to be housed in a department of orthopedics. For our faculty, staff, students, preceptors and alumni, this innovative program creates intense learning experiences and daily collaboration with the best Athletic Training, Orthopedics, Primary Care and Musculoskeletal Medicine practitioners. As part of USF Health, our students participate in numerous interprofessional educational opportunities with other health care students and faculty.
The goal of the USF Athletic Training Program is to prepare our graduates for personal and professional success while setting the standard for excellence in Athletic Training and Sports Medicine nationwide. We invite you to explore our website to discover all of the exciting educational opportunities within USF Athletic Training and USF Health.
