Athletic Training

The two-year program in Athletic Training is designed for students who are interested in an allied health profession specializing in the health care of athletes. Athletic trainers function as integral members of the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs, and other athletic health care settings. The athletic trainer specializes in the prevention, assessment, management, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. The program at Howard Community College is intended to prepare students for transfer to a four-year institution with an Athletic Training program accredited by the National Athletic Training Association.
