Athletic Training

If you want to be an essential player in a big-time sports operation, athletic training might be for you! This fully accredited program is a partnership between K-State’s Department of Human Nutrition and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. You’ll study the concepts and skills to properly manage the health care problems that come with physical activity, and graduate prepared to take the national examination to become a certified athletic trainer.  Along with physicians and other health care personnel, the athletic trainer has a key role in secondary schools, colleges and universities, professional sports, sports medicine clinics, and other health care settings. In this field, living your life on the sidelines can have big rewards!

Alumni Advice to Future Students:

Tony Katzenmeier “You will be putting in many hours both in the classroom and on the field. Without the athletic training students, (the demands of ) K-State athletics would be much more difficult for the full-time athletic trainers. Work hard and they will bend over backwards for you when you go out into the real world. They have for me.” — Tony Katzenmeier, ATC, ’04 Athletic Training, graduate teaching assistant at Eastern Illinois University, past intern for the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots

“The strongest aspect about K-State’s athletic training program is the hands-on experience students receive. K-State has a great relationship with the Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Center, which allows students to interact with doctors and observe surgeries. Students get evalution and rehab experience by working with Division I athletic programs on a daily basis.” — Heather Duitsman, ATCC/LAT, ’04 athletic training and kinesiology, graduate assistant athletic trainer at Eastern Illinois University
