Military AT Job Grant Program
NATA has created a grant process for government contractors who are looking to employ athletic trainers in the military setting.
ATs working within the military are not new, but recent expansions have increased visibility and demand for qualified health care professionals to work for the U.S. Armed Forces.
ATs who are interested in learning about government contract positions can read more and search for posted positions on NATA's Career Center.
