The athletic training program at Quinnipiac is both rigorous and intense. The program places specific requirements and demands on the students enrolled in it. A primary objective of the program is to prepare graduates to work in a variety of settings and to provide deliberate, responsible care to a wide range of individuals.
The technical standards set forth by the athletic training program establish the necessary qualities for students to gain the knowledge, skills and competencies of an entry-level athletic trainer. The program is also designed to help students meet the accreditation requirements of the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
All students admitted to the program must satisfy the established abilities and expectations. In the event a student is unable to fulfill these technical standards, with or without reasonable accommodation, the student will not be admitted or may be dismissed from the program.
Candidates for selection to the program will be required to verify they understand and meet the technical standards, or they believe that, with certain reasonable accommodations, the technical standards can be met. Verification of this understanding includes the student reading, signing and returning a copy of the technical standards agreement to the ATSM program director during the first year.
