1 Athletic Training Education Program 245 Ward Sports Medicine Building East Carolina University Greenville, NC Tel Fax Dear Prospective Athletic Training Student: Thank you for inquiring about our nationally accredited athletic training program. We offer a CAAHEP (Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs) accredited athletic training curriculum on the undergraduate level, preparing students to be certified athletic trainers. The program is designed to enable one to take the National Athletic Trainer s Association Board of Certification (NATABOC) national examination upon graduation. Students pursuing the athletic training degree will earn a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training within the Department of Health Education and Promotion. This major requires a minimum of 126 semester hours (sh): 42 hours of general education courses, 66 s.h. in the major area, and elective hours that can result in an approved minor or prepare one for further graduate study in an allied health profession such as physical therapy or a physician assistant program. The athletic training curriculum has a strong clinical aspect in addition to rigorous course work. A minimum of 1000 practical, supervised hours under NATABOC certified athletic trainers are required. Approximately one third of these hours are in addition to regular course work. There is a separate admission process to the athletic training program, and admission to East Carolina University does not guarantee admission into the athletic training major. This curriculum is restricted by student-to-clinical instructor ratio, and admission is competitive. Our program begins with a one-year candidacy period, in which you will shadow in the athletic training field, and take specific preparatory courses; followed by formal admission to the athletic training major. There are also written technical standards for admission that can be found in the ECU Athletic Training Student handbook and the program s web site ( Entrance to the candidacy period requires that you: 1. be admitted to East Carolina University, 2. enter the program with a 2.0 G.P.A. from your most recent educational institution (based on a 4.0 scale), 3. have on file, by July 1 st preceding the semester in which you wish to enter, a completed application which includes: a) two letters of recommendation, b) Official transcripts from your most recent institution sent directly to this office, c) a 250 word essay describing why you want to be an athletic trainer; d) a signed copy of the Technical Standards for admission to the Athletic Training Program, and 4. attend a mandatory organizational meeting at the beginning of the fall semester (typically the evening before classes begin). All students entering the program must do so during the Fall semester. No mid-year students will be accepted. Valuable practical experience can be gained on a gratis basis as an athletic training student beginning with your first year. First year athletic training students (Candidates) will use the two semesters of that year for observation only. The required 120 hours gained during that year will not count toward the 1000 needed for graduation, but will be used as one the criteria for determining official acceptance into the major. Athletic training students undergoing the candidacy period will observe athletic training majors by rotating through the sports at East Carolina University as assigned (typically two-week blocks). The candidates will be expected to be at the practices for their assigned sport during their rotation. At the end of the candidacy year (typically May), it will be determined whether or not one is accepted into the curriculum, based on the numbers of slots available. (continued next page) East Carolina University is a constituent institution of the University of North Carolina, an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. Prospective Athletic Training Student, Page 2

2 Formal acceptance into the athletic training major includes the following criteria: 1. A semester and cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 or above, 2. completion of HLTH 1800, 2810 & 2811 with a grade C or better, 3. current CPR and First Aid certification from an approved provider, 4. successful completion of the candidacy period which includes: a. all Level I Proficiencies must be completed and signed off by an appropriate athletic trainer, b. no violations of the NATA or ECU Athletic Training Code of Ethics, or ECU Honor Code c. 120 clinical hours (fall and spring semesters combined) shadowing ECU athletic trainers/athletic training majors 5. passing a Health Screening/Physical Examination, 6. an interview in the Spring of your Candidacy year; only the top applicants to the program, as determined by a rating sheet, will be interviewed for acceptance into the program. 7. In addition, scores from the interviews, as well as objective criteria such as a. practical hours logged in the athletic training room, b. evaluation scores, previous course work, and c. G.P.A., will be used to determine which students gain official entry. A specific rating sheet is included in the Athletic Training Student Handbook. All students formally accepted into the major are not only gaining didactic knowledge in the classroom, but are also logging supervised practical hours under a NATABOC certified athletic trainer. The number of students being accepted into the major will be determined by the number of slots available. If the athletic training candidate is not accepted into the program following his/her candidacy period, he or she may choose to attempt to gain entry the next year by returning to the pool of eligible candidates. Transfer students must also meet the above criteria, both for admission to the candidacy year, and acceptance into the major. No transfer athletic training classes will be accepted, but other course work may be allowed on an individual basis. Contact the College of Health and Human Performance Advising Center for details at We do not offer direct financial aid to athletic training students. You may be eligible for a grant based on need. Contact your high school counselor to receive the necessary forms that may include Parent s Confidential Statement (P.C.S.) Form or Basic Education Opportunity Grant (B.E.O.G.) Form. Your parents should fill out these forms and send them to the Financial Aid Office on main campus. Students who have been active in the formal curriculum for at least one year, and are Juniors or Seniors, may apply for the Ronnie Barnes or Sports Medicine Alumni Scholarships.

4 EAST CAROLINA UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC TRAINING EDUCATION PROGRAM TECHNICAL STANDARDS FOR ADMISSION The Athletic Training Educational Program at East Carolina University is a rigorous and intense program that places specific requirements and demands on the students enrolled in the program. An objective of this program is to prepare graduates to enter a variety of employment settings and to render care to a wide spectrum of individuals engaged in physical activity. The technical standards set forth by the Athletic Training Educational Program establish the essential qualities considered necessary for students admitted to this program to achieve the knowledge, skills, and competencies of an entry-level athletic trainer, as well as meet the expectations of the program's accrediting agency (Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs [CAAHEP]). All students admitted to the Athletic Training Educational Program must meet the following abilities and expectations. In the event a student is unable to fulfill these technical standards, with or without reasonable accommodation, the student will not be admitted into the program. Compliance with the program's technical standards does not guarantee a student's eligibility for the NATABOC certification exam. Candidates for selection to the Athletic Training Educational Program must demonstrate: 1. the mental capacity to assimilate, analyze, synthesize, integrate concepts and problem solve to formulate assessment and therapeutic judgments and to be able to distinguish deviations from the norm; 2. sufficient postural and neuromuscular control, sensory function, and coordination to perform appropriate physical examinations using accepted techniques; and accurately, safely and efficiently use equipment and materials during the assessment and treatment of patients; 3. the ability to communicate effectively and sensitively with patients and colleagues, including individuals from different cultural and social backgrounds; this includes, but is not limited to, the ability to establish rapport with patients and communicate judgments and treatment information effectively. Students must be able to understand and speak the English language at a level consistent with competent professional practice; 4. the ability to record the physical examination results and a treatment plan clearly and accurately; 5. the capacity to maintain composure and continue to function well during periods of high stress; 6. the perseverance, diligence and commitment to complete the athletic training education program as outlined and sequenced; 7. flexibility and the ability to adjust to changing situations and uncertainty in clinical situations; 8. affective skills and appropriate demeanor and rapport that relate to professional education and quality patient care. Candidates for selection to the ECU Athletic Training Program will be required to verify they understand and meet these technical standards or that they believe that, with certain accommodations, they can meet the standards. The Disability Support Services Office ( ) will evaluate a student who states he/she could meet the program's technical standards with accommodation and confirm that the stated condition qualifies as a disability under applicable laws.

5 If a student states he/she can meet the technical standards with accommodation, then the University will determine whether it agrees that the student can meet the technical standards with reasonable accommodation; this includes a review a whether the accommodations requested are reasonable, taking into account whether accommodation would jeopardize clinician/patient safety, or the educational process of the student or the institution, including all coursework, clinical experiences and internships deemed essential to graduation. I certify that I have read and understand the technical standards for selection listed above, and I believe to the best of my knowledge that I meet each of these standards without accommodation. I understand that if I am unable to meet these standards I will not be admitted into the program.
