Why Athletic Training at WJU?
The growing field of athletic training provides a unique experience of professionalism and interaction with athletes and athletic injuries. An athletic trainer encounters many scenarios during an average workday. Making decisions, devising treatment protocols, serving as a liaison to the physician, documenting daily notes, and providing emergency first aid care are just a few of the scenarios an athletic trainer encounters. Athletic trainers manage training rooms, order supplies, and provide athletic education on many health topics, like nutrition, exercise, injury prevention, rehabilitation and wellness.
Students will take part in care at local hospitals and independent clinics. Summer internships are being explored as well and may include stints with the professional teams.
Wheeling Jesuit University will welcome its first class in the newly established athletic training program in fall 2007. WJU is responding to the need for professionally trained athletic experts.
