Athletic Training

The Athletic Training Program at UNLV offers hands-on clinical instruction that provides excellent field-based learning opportunities for each student.

Students gain clinical experience directly from Licensed Athletic Trainers (LAT) and other health care providers in the areas of prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation for athletic-related injuries, as well as providing daily care for active patients.
