About our programs
Each year, the CAATE compiles a report from information collected through the Annual Report. All programs are required to complete the Annual Report. The information contained in these documents is reported by Program Directors, and is assumed to be accurate. These reports will assist in providing information as to the current picture of athletic training education and will also provide benchmarking opportunities for the profession and existing programs as we continue to evolve in the ever changing landscape of higher education and health care.
