Our licensed athletic trainers are health care professionals who specialize in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. As part of a complete health care team, the certified athletic trainer works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches and parents.Many sports medicine athletic trainers with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have a master’s degree or additional qualifications in physical therapy and exercise science related fields. These professionals have critical hands-on experience as well as textbook know-how, including extensive orthopedic and musculoskeletal education.
Our athletic trainers are involved with providing coverage for athletic events, assisting in physician clinics and physical therapy and coordinating educational offerings as part of our outreach in the community.
