The Vision of the ESU Athletic Training Program is to be a leading student-centered athletic training program that offers distinct educational challenges to a diverse student body. Furthermore, students are afforded the opportunity to demonstrate entry-level competency as an athletic trainer while embracing the values of scholarship, professionalism, and diversity.
One measure of program effectiveness is postgraduate study and employability. Many ESU graduates are among the best clinicians, educators and researchers in the field. The ESU Athletic Training Program continues to place its students in many of the best graduate and professional programs as well as emerging and traditional practice settings.
Another measure of program effectiveness is pass rate on the Board of Certification Examination for Athletic Trainers. The following table represents the three-year average performance of program graduates on the BOC® Examination.
