On the right foot

One step ahead

UIndy helped lead the way in the athletic training profession when it converted its undergraduate degree program into a master’s program. Soon, all entry-level AT jobs will require a master’s degree, which means UIndy students have an advantage in the job search. Junior Connor Burton welcomes the change and trusts the preparation that UIndy has given him. “Our program has a 100 percent pass rate on the athletic training board of certification exam,” he says. Students have diverse clinical experiences with the city’s high schools, universities, professional teams, and in physicians’ offices. “The faculty prepares us well for the real world,” he says. “I think that UIndy’s athletic training program is truly the best in the state!”
