The Saint Louis University Athletic Training Program in the Doisy College of Health Sciences is a graduate professional program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. In accordance with the Jesuit mission, which recognizes the dignity of all persons, the program seeks to develop competent practitioners who act for the good of the public, recognize the value of interprofessional practice, and who seek opportunities to serve the disadvantaged.
