Athletic Training at Carson-Newman
Athletic Training is an allied health profession that is recognized by the American Medical Association. Certified Athletic Trainers, under the direction of a licensed physician, provide health care for athletes and those who are physically active within six areas of clinical practice: prevention, clinical evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation and reconditioning, organization and administration and professional responsibilities. At Carson-Newman College, there are two distinct, yet tightly interwoven athletic training programs, one aimed at providing health care for the Eagles & Lady Eagles and one geared toward the education of future athletic trainers. If you would like more information about the CAATE accredited athletic training education program, please contact Eugene Dupas, Interim ATEP Director, at 865-471-4650.
