Salisbury University’s School of Health Sciences offers a professional program leading to a Master of Science in Athletic Training, which prepares students for a career as an athletic trainer.  Athletic training is a health care profession that involves the prevention, diagnosis and management of active individuals who sustain traumatic or lingering injuries, or develop acute illness or other medical conditions that impair a person's normal function.  To practice as an athletic trainer, a candidate must complete an entry-level athletic training program from a nationally accredited academic institution that sponsors an athletic training program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).  Salisbury University's professional athletic training program received initial accreditation in 1998 and re-accreditation in 2004 and 2011 at the baccalaureate level.  Students must also pass the national certification examination and, in most states, apply for a license to practice as an athletic trainer.
