The Athletic Training Program (ATP) is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education.  UMaine’s ATP is designed to provide a thorough understanding of anatomy, physiology, health and other academic subjects necessary for effective prevention, recognition, evaluation, and management of injuries and illnesses.  Students work directly with UMaine and the community Athletic Trainers and Health Care Providers once admitted into the program.  With a wide variety of Clinical Experiences, Athletic Training Students are exposed to athletic training at the high school level, college and university levels, at private practices, and in local hospitals and health care facilities.  Hands-on learning begins as early as the second year of college for these students.

Students enter ATP after being accepted in the “professional” aspect of the education program.  This consists of successfully completing several courses and a Candidacy Application. Students must maintain a 2.5 overall GPA and a B- or better in all Athletic Training courses to remain in the ATP once accepted.  All transfer students must apply to the ATP and complete all Athletic Training Clinical Experience courses offered by UMaine. Learn  of our competitive admissions policy  on our website.
