Welcome to the Athletic Training Program at UNO!
An athletic trainer is a qualified health care professional educated and experienced in the management of health care problems associated with physical activity. In cooperation with physicians and other health care personnel, the athletic trainer functions as an integral member of the health care team.
The mission of the Athletic Training Education Program at the University of Nebraska at Omaha is to prepare students for successful careers or advanced academic studies in the field of athletic training by providing comprehensive and progressive studies leading to national certification as an athletic trainer. The program will provide diverse experiences, both clinical and didactic, based on the competencies set forth by the NATA.
We take pride in our long tradition of serving the Omaha Metropolitan area. Our students take an active role in the profession of athletic training: from serving the campus and Omaha communities, to presenting at regional conferences, and attending national athletic training events. We hope that this webpage will help you learn more about our profession and our program at UNO.
