Prepare individuals to become competent and independent clinicians who will enhance the quality of patient health care and advance the profession of athletic training through the application of evidence-based practice and translational research. Our MAT program instills critical thinking, problem solving, ethical reasoning abilities and interpersonal skills promoting lifelong learning and an enrichment in the quality of lives for individuals in diverse settings.


The Oklahoma State University Master of Athletic Training Program is currently accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).  Once accepted into the program, students are assigned to a Board of Certification (BOC) Certified Athletic Trainer (AT) where they are responsible to provide for the overall health care of patients over the course of their respective seasons or occupation. Clinical instruction of students is achieved through direct supervision of a licensed physician and the athletic trainer.

The curriculum is based in the human sciences with anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition and psychology providing the theoretical foundation of student inquiry. Students learn how to apply these theoretical concepts while in the clinical setting learning under licensed physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists and other allied health care professionals. This balance of theory and practical application prepares students to sit for the Board of Certification examination where upon successful completion, may earn the credentials ATC.
