Athletic Trainers

What Is An Athletic Trainer?

An athletic trainer is a highly qualified, multi-skilled professional who encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions. He/she works under the direction of a physician. He/she is supported academically and clinically by the American Medical Association, the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and that American Academy of Pediatrics. In the state of New Jersey, an athletic trainer must have a national certification, a license through the State of New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners.

What Can Our Athletic Trainers Do?
