Finding Your Educational Pathway

The Educational Pathways Document, created by a work group comprised of members of the NATA Executive Committee for Education and NATA Post-Professional Education Committee, breaks down each educational possibility available after an athletic trainer earns his/her bachelor’s or master’s degree and becomes certified. In addition to outlining what comes next for AT students after graduation and certification,  the document also explains the differences between each option (ie: fellowship vs. residency) and offers additional resources and considerations. The Educational Pathways document is designed to be a living document and will be updated as new resources and information become available.
