Athletic Training 101

Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients.  Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities.  Athletic trainers in Iowa must have passed the Board of Certification national examination and be licensed by the Iowa Department of Public Health to legally practice in Iowa.
