Athletic Training major
"As someone that came into college with a strong desire to get involved in the medical field and an equally strong passion for sports, athletic training has given me the best of both worlds...
Not only am I gaining hands-on experience with Division-1 athletes, but I’m also learning how to become a medical professional everyday in the training room.
Athletic training is such a unique major because the time spent on the field and in the training room is sometimes far more valuable than anything you can learn in the classroom.
Throughout my time as an athletic training major thus far, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of Miami University athletic teams in addition to spending a semester at a high school. One of my favorite aspects about my major are the strong relationships that I’ve built with the Certified Athletic Trainers at Miami and the tight-knit group of athletic training students that have become some of my best friends.
A few more facts about me:
- President, Miami University Student Athletic Training Association (MUSATA)
- Newcomer of the Year, 2013, Miami University Athletic Training Education Program
- Qualifier for the Boston Marathon
