The Professional Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) Program is designed to prepare students for Board of Certification (BOC) for a career as a licensed Athletic Trainer in a variety of different clinical settings.

Salem State University’s MSAT Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The sequencing of athletic training courses takes two years to complete. In addition to the required didactic and laboratory experiences, this program requires the completion of 1,040 hours of direct patient care clinical experiences under the direct supervision of a licensed athletic trainer.

The MSAT Program offers an integrative approach to classroom and laboratory course work that is combined with extensive hands-on clinical experiences. The program faculty utilize contemporary research, clinical expertise, and technology to provide students with an integrative perspective and understanding of comprehensive sports medicine care. This program has limited enrollment and specific requirements for admission and retention.
