Inside Look

EKU Giving Day 2023 (4/19/23)!

EKU Athletic Training

I am reaching out to each of you as alumni of our athletic training program for several reasons. The first is to thank you for building a life of “giving” through your work, service and loyalty to EKU and our program. Athletic training is a service field, often without recognition or gratitude yet we serve to impact those around us regardless! I’m proud to represent the profession and more importantly EKU because I understand the opportunities that we create for our students and, by extension, the patients you have treated, are treating, and/or will be treating.

EKU AT Program Gets Three Seconds of Fame...(maybe less)

The EKU Athletic Training Program got a small feature in EKU's latest University produced commercial. The commercial features several programs across the campus that provide hands-on experiences leading to real world application. If you are curious about how much "application" you can receive through our program, be sure to check out our MS in AT Program's curriculum. Clinical immersive experiences are spread throughout the program but culminate in 2 full-semester, full-immersion experiences that leave you with almost a full year of clinical experience!
