What is an Athletic Trainer?
An Athletic Trainer (ATC) is a licensed healthcare provider responsible for injury prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries as well as medical conditions. ATC’s within the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Sports Health Program provide injury prevention assessments and return to sports activities to keep young athletes healthy and on the field.
Our team of athletic trainers not only assist our orthopedic physicians in a clinical setting, but also provide outreach services within the community. Our outreach services include providing sports medicine coverage for games, practices, sports leagues and special events. Athletic trainers also provide education seminars to the sports community and schools on injury prevention and proper tehcniques and drills. Learn more.
