Athletic Training

The Baldwin Wallace University Athletic Training Department strives to provide the best medical care for all intercollegiate student-athletes.
Certified athletic trainers are healthcare professionals who specialize in preventing, recognizing, managing, and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. As a part of a complete health care team, the certified athletic trainer works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches, and parents.
Athletic training is not the same profession as personal training. And certified athletic trainers work with more than just athletes- they can be found just about anywhere that people are physically active.

To become certified athletic trainers, students must pass a comprehensive test administered by the Board of Certification. Once certified, they must meet ongoing continuing education requirements in order to remain certified. Click Here to visit the NATA website
BW employs several certified athletic trainers who work in conjunction with team physicians from University Hospitals. Student-athletes' care from certified athletic trainers are often supplemented and observed by athletic training students.

When a student athlete is injured, they will be evaluated by an athletic trainer. The student athlete’s injuries will be manage and treated by certified athletic trainers. When necessary the student athlete will be referred to the team physician.
