The Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) at Norwich University develops a student’s skills in recognition, prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Students also develop expertise in health-care administration and ethical responsibility throughout the program.
Athletic Training Students are required to take a number of classes in anatomy, physiology, biology, and chemistry.

Norwich University Athletic Training Education Program Handbook
The Athletic Training Student Handbook 2016-17 (PDF) outlines program information for Athletic Training students. This document outlines all of the policies and procedures upheld by the ATEP. When each student enters the professional phase of the ATEP, in the fall of their sophomore year, they will receive a hard copy of this handbook.
The Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) at Norwich is a professional degree program. In order to make sure that we have qualified students entering the professional phase, all students go through a secondary application process in the spring semester of their freshman year. This ensures that students have all of the skills that need to succeed through the rest of their academic courses and clinical experiences.
The secondary application process includes an interview, review of relevant course work, and submission of resume and application letter. Review of applications and interviews are done by the Sports Medicine Department faculty and Clinical Preceptors.
Being a professional degree program, the Athletic Training students should expect additional costs on top of their tuition, books, and room and board. These expenses include but are not limited to travel expenses to clinical sites, uniform cost, and equipment costs.
