What is ATC - Why is it Important?
ATC is a professional credential that identifies an individual as a Certified Athletic Trainer. In order to receive this credential, one must graduate from a four-year, accredited college athletic training program and pass the requisite exam given by the NATABOC, National Athletic Trainers' Association Board of Certification.
The AMA, American Medical Association, has recognized Athletic Training, as an allied healthcare profession since 1990. Certified Athletic Trainers are healthcare professionals who play a vital role on the sidelines. They screen for and identify concussions and there at every level of care - injury prevention, assessment and diagnosis, to treatment and rehabilitation, Certified Athletic Trainers are expert in orthopedic and musculoskeletal disciplines and fully understand a wide range of medical conditions both emergent and chronic. Athletic Trainers know athletes best. Having an AT on the field means concussions are more likely to be diagnosed, injured athletes have better outcomes, and both recovery time and long-term health are greatly improved.
