Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP)
A new undergraduate major in Athletic Training is being developed at the University of Miami. This program is housed in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science in the School of Education. Students that matriculate through this program will be awarded a Bachelors of Science Degree and they will be eligible to sit for the national professional exam.
This development major is currently seeking accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Heath Education Programs (CAAHEP). The Athletic Training Education program is currently in the 2nd year of the required two-year candidacy period prior to accreditation. During the 2002-2003 academic year, CAAHEP will visit the University of Miami campus to evaluate the program and determine its accreditation status.
