TCU Athletic Training and Sports Medicine
Athletic training is a part of the Sports Medicine profession that may require many hours of total dedication, hard work, self-discipline, and extensive educational course work in a CAATE accredited undergraduate curriculum.

The NATABOC certified athletic trainer, or ATC, is a highly educated and skilled professional whose specialty is in athletic health care. The ATC is recognized as an Allied Health Professional. As a sports medicine expert and member of the complete health care team, the ATC works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals and sports team members. The ATC is skilled and knowledgeable in five areas, otherwise recognized as the five domains of athletic training. They are:

• Injury/illness prevention and wellness protection
• Clinical evaluation and diagnosis
• Immediate and emergency care
• Treatment and rehabilitation
• Organizational and professional health and well-being

Unit Goals
Objectives for the Athletic Training Room are to provide the highest level of athletic and sports medicine care to the intercollegiate student athletes of Texas Christian University. This includes the care, prevention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries and helping to direct the nutritional and physiological needs of the student athlete.

Objectives for the Athletic Training / Sports Medicine Program
Objectives for the Athletic Training / Sports Medicine Program are to educate students in the field of Athletic Training to serve the scholastic, intercollegiate, professional, and recreational athletes who are participating in sport, whether formally or informally. These objectives are aimed at assisting the development and advancement of the students toward the fruition of their academic and life goals while attempting to develop and/or maintain the positive role model atmosphere.

An Athletic Trainer is defined as a qualified allied health care professional educated and experienced in the management of health care problems associated with sports participation. The athletic trainer works under the auspices of and in cooperation with the physicians and other allied health care personnel for the ultimate good of the participating athlete.

The Athletic Trainer must also work with the other direct members of the active sports medicine team including the administrators, parents, athletes, and coaches in providing an efficient and responsive athletic health care delivery system.
