Dear Student and Family;
Thank you for your interest in our Athletic Training Program at Slippery Rock University. I hope that the contents of this website answer your questions and help raise new ones for us to answer. We are very proud of our program and are always eager to welcome strong, enthusiastic students into our ranks. You will find that the Athletic Training Program has a long, rich history that we strive to preserve. Our reputation for developing and guiding strong Certified Athletic Trainers into the profession is well known not only here on campus, but on a national level as well.
The Athletic Training Program provides a unique experience on campus. Few other programs are as limited in student number, allowing the faculty to teach, advise and clinically supervise the same students. This creates a close mentoring relationship that lasts during the students’ tenure at SRU and well beyond. Through this relationship we hope to provide educational components that are not available in textbooks. The greatest of these is professional socialization. We believe there is much more to developing a health care professional than knowledge and skills. Thus, our philosophy is grounded in professionalism and ethical conduct.
Study the information we have provided and if you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us. If you have any questions please email or call me. Thank you again for your interest in Slippery Rock University’s Athletic Training Program. We look forward to hearing from you.
