At UMaine, athletic training majors become part of a close-knit community of students, professors, clinical instructors and physicians. Our students are able to work with athletic trainers who have decades of experience in the field. Because UMaine is a Division I school, athletic training majors can work with elite athletes on campus on a daily basis. They also have the chance to work with high school sports teams, NCAA Division III athletes and patients in local hospitals and doctor’s offices. To hone their skills, students can work with several types of health care providers, including nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, medical doctors and osteopathic doctors. The heart of the program is the Wes Jordan Athletic Training Complex, a spacious, recently renovated facility that features classrooms, an aqua-therapy lab, a rehabilitation lab, and a lab designed to replicate an athletic training room. Each of these labs has supplies and equipment that a certified athletic trainer would use in the field, providing real-world experience in a state-of-the-art on-campus setting. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. We are currently active and in good standing, with a re-accreditation date of 2020.
