The Division of Athletic Training at Ohio State's School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences has transitioned the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training (BSAT) to a Master of Athletic Training (MAT) degree to prepare the next generation of athletic trainers in accordance with new national guideline requirements. The first MAT cohort began in Summer 2023.

Ohio State Athletic Training is a flagship program with a well-established international reputation for excellence. This is a program where everyone knows you by name and every instructor is invested in your personal and professional success. Our graduates' board exam performance at the BSAT level consistently places us in the top tier among programs nationally and there are few programs that can offer the variety and quality of opportunities that you will find here.

Admitted students will be expected to exemplify program pillars of oral and written communication, problem solving, and critical thinking. Integrated within the curriculum are the professional behaviors from the National Athletic Trainer's Association professional values, which promote clinicians who act with Integrity and are Caring, Compassionate, Competent, Respectful, and Accountable.

Join our legacy of excellence and leadership in the field as part of the Ohio State Buckeye Athletic Training family.
