Athletic Trainer Service and Partnership
Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes. The National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) Code of Ethics states the principles of ethical behavior that should be followed in the practice of athletic training.
