HHP Announces New Graduate Program in Athletic Training

The Department of Health and Human Performance is proud to announce a new graduate program in Athletic Training. The UH Board of Regents has announced the approval of the Master of Athletic Training degree program for the University of Houston’s curriculum. The Master of Athletic Training — the first of its kind in Houston universities — is expected to prepare students for the growing demand and changing laws in healthcare and an aging population.

The Master of Athletic Training program will recruit a full-time program director and clinical coordinator and will also draw from people associated with NASA and Memorial Hermann Hospital.

The program will ultimately seek accreditation from The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and will partner with the Astronaut Conditioning and Rehabilitation group based at NASA-Johnson Space Center.
