Athletic Training

The advisors for athletic training are:


An athletic trainer is a health care professional licensed to work under the direction of a physician to provide a broad spectrum of patient care services in prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of orthopedic injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers are comprehensive health care providers with specialization in orthopedics and sports medicine.

Students interested in pursuing a career in Athletic Training and sitting for the national Board of Certification (BOC) examination are advised to complete the B.S. in Exercise Science with a concentration in Health and Wellness in order to complete suggested prerequisites for application to a Master of Science in Athletic Training degree program.

Students interested in specifically pursing the High Point University Master of Science in Athletic Training combined with the BS in Exercise Science (3+2 MSAT program) will work with their Student Success Coach, Britt Carl (, to develop pre-athletic training course schedules and be considered BS.EXS.ATR majors. Beyond the freshmen year students will be assigned to a faculty member in the Department of Exercise Science with additional consultation from Dr. Jolene Henning in the Department of Athletic Training. Once admitted to the MSAT degree students are advised by athletic training faculty members.
