Residency & Fellowship Standards Open Comment is LIVE!

The Standards and Guidelines for the Accreditation of Post-Professional Athletic Training Residency Programs (Standards) are to be used for the development, evaluation, analysis, and maintenance of post- professional athletic training residency programs. Via comprehensive and annual review processes, CAATE is responsible for the evaluation of a program’s compliance with the Standards. The Standards provide minimum academic requirements; institutions/entities are encouraged to develop sound innovative educational approaches that substantially exceed these Standards.

The Standards document also contains a glossary of terms used throughout the process; the definition provided in the glossary must be applied as stated.
