Pre-professional Clinical Studies

The purpose of this minor is to provide the student with applied knowledge of athletic training clinical theory and skills.

It is primarily designed for those students pursuing other medical and allied health fields or graduate education. It is an attractive and marketable combination with the following majors: pre-medicine, pre-physical therapy, pre-occupational therapy, and pre-nursing.

The minor in Pre-healthcare Clinical Studies does not meet NATA-BOC or Virginia licensure eligibility requirements, and therefore, does not lead to certification as an Athletic Trainer.
