A Rich Tradition...

Since its beginning in 1978, Athletic Training (AT) Program faculty and staff have provided students with the highest quality of athletic training education. Currently, MSU offers a CAATE (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education) accredited AT program. The program includes classroom education along with  an abundant opportunity for hands on clinical experience. Not only will students have the opportunity to work with Missouri State's Division I athletic programs, they will be able to experience athletic training through Drury University athletics, Mercy Sports Medicine HealthTracks, Mercy Sports Medicine, and the local high school system. The Missouri State AT Program is dedicated to the highest quality of education for its students. Our graduating seniors consistently pass the national certification at a rate of 20% above the national average. Additionally, in recent years, all of our graduating seniors have gained employment or continued their education immediately following graduation from the program.
