Job Opportunities and Career Information - Athletic Trainer

Field Description
Athletic trainers evaluate, advise and treat athletes and others who are physically active to assist them in recovering from injury and preventing injuries.

Athletic trainers play a significant role in the management, prevention, recognition and rehabilitation of injured athletes. Under the supervision of a licensed physician, athletic trainers administer immediate emergency and follow-up care. They develop athletic injury prevention and treatment programs using their knowledge of biomechanics, anatomy and pathology.

For athletes, athletic trainers also provide a vital communication link between the injured athlete, the physician, the coach, and sometimes the athlete's family, to determine when it’s right to return to practice and competition.

Career Opportunities
Career opportunities for athletic trainers are good. Approximately 25,000 athletic trainers are employed in the United States. Each year, the profession grows by approximately 10 percent, which is about average for most professions.

The certified athletic trainer is a highly educated and skilled health sciences professional specializing in athletic health care. In cooperation with physicians and other allied health personnel, the athletic trainer functions as an integral member of the athletic health-care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs and other health-care settings.

Athletic trainers in high schools work to prevent and treat athletic injuries, which may happen during practice or competition. Athletic trainers may also teach at the high school during the day.

In a sports medicine clinic, athletic trainers work with patient treatment and rehabilitation, provide athletic training coverage for a high school or college and conduct coaches’ workshops and other sports medicine educational programs.

At the college level the athletic trainer covers practice sessions and home and away competitions, supervises the educational experiences of student trainers, and may teach sports medicine classes.

Professional athletic trainers work year-round with male and female professional sports teams, including football, basketball, baseball, and hockey.

The field of athletic training has grown very large. In addition to sports teams, companies have started to hire athletic trainers as a service to employees. Employment can also be found in the armed forces, dance companies, sales and as physician extenders.

Earning Potential
Starting salaries in athletic training range from $22,000 to $35,000 a year. With a master’s degree, you can start from $30,000 to $36,000 a year. There are athletic trainers who work for professional teams and earn from $75,000 to $125,000 a year. The benefits you receive as an athletic trainer may include a paid vacation, health insurance and a pension plan.
