This CAATE (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education) accredited major is designed to prepare students to become skilled allied health care practitioners capable of working in the athletic training field as well as a multitude of other settings. Upon completion, students are eligible and expected to sit for the BOC (Board of Certification) examination in order to become a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC). Major emphasis is placed on the development of cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills and is accomplished by the integration of didactic coursework with laboratory, practicum, clinical and internship experiences. Students must be selected into the clinical experience component of the major and must pass eligibility standards to continue in the program. Admission is based on, but not limited to: documented clinical observation hours, prerequisite course grades, overall grade point average, evaluations, proficiency exam, and letters of recommendation. Details of program accreditation and selection standards are available from the Athletic Training Program Director as well as accessible on the Baldwin Wallace University Athletic Training Program website. http://www.bw.edu/academics/hpe/programs/at/
