Athletic Training encompasses a wide range of healthcare subjects, from pathology of injuries and illnesses, to conditioning and rehabilitative exercises, to nutrition and pharmacology. Graduates provide a link between physically active individuals and the medical community. Piedmont students receive classroom instruction and serve clinical practicums at traditional and allied community health settings across northeast Georgia. Admission to the program is competitive and not guaranteed.
Accelerated-entry (3+2) students complete three years of coursework before beginning the two-year professional phase of studies and will graduate with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees
Traditional-entry students must hold a bachelor’s degree from Piedmont or another institution before entering the two-year professional phase of studies
