Online Degree and Certificate Programs
Among the first programs of its kind, A.T. Still University’s (ATSU) Doctor of Athletic Training (DAT) degree develops clinical and academic leaders who advance the athletic training profession. Doctors of Athletic Training serve as expert clinicians, educators, and administrators with advanced knowledge and skills for analyzing, developing, and implementing practical solutions to improve the delivery of athletic healthcare and the health outcomes of physically active individuals and their communities.
ATSU’s online athletic training degree is designed for those who seek a doctorate in athletic training and desire a terminal degree in athletic training, not a terminal academic degree (i.e. PhD) in another area with a concentration in athletic training.
Most athletic trainers who are best fit for this advanced online athletic training degree are elite clinical, educational and industry professionals who gain a powerful educational benefit as students embedded in a work setting while progressing through the curriculum. Educators are prepared with the advanced graduate training needed to effectively teach their own students to succeed as athletic trainers.
