Certified athletic trainers (ATCs) are medical professionals who prevent, assess, manage, and rehabilitate injuries that result from physical activity. ATCs strive to help physically active individuals avoid unnecessary medical treatment and disruption of normal daily life. As part of a complete health care team, the ATC works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches, and parents.
