Athletic Training Dr. Gary Ball

 

The Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training Education is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs to train students to become professionals who are fully able to meet the total health needs of athletes. Working under the supervision of a team physician and in cooperation with coaching staff, athletic trainers are responsible for the prevention and care of athletic injuries. This is accomplished through the development and implementation of conditioning programs, the analysis and encouragement of proper biomechanics, the administration of proper first-aid and injury-assessment procedures, the analysis and fitting of protective equipment, and the implementation of appropriate rehabilitation procedures.

 

Upon graduation, students receive a Bachelor of Science degree and qualify to take the National Trainers Association Board of Certification (NATABOC) Examination. Under the governance of the State Board of Medical Examiners, those New Jersey residents who pass the NATABOC Exam can qualify to be licensed and work as athletic trainers in the state.

 

 

PROGRAM GOALS:

  • To prepare the student to qualify and sit for the BOC Certification Exam.

  • To provide the student with the knowledge to work cooperatively in the professional setting.

  • To prepare the student to analyze health related medical situations, and to draw logical conclusions and resolutions to those situations.

  • To prepare the student to be diverse in his/her approach to the management of medical situations.
