Happy New Year from the SLU Athletic Training Education Program!

The faculty and staff of the SLU Athletic Training Education Program wishes you a Happy New Year!  Many remarkable new milestones took place in 2010 and we look forward to more special things happening in 2011.  One of the things we are most excited about is that the MAT Class of 2013.....the first freshman class we brought in our program, enters the professional phase of the program.  This will grow the professional phase of our program from 12 students in each of the past two years to 24 next year and almost 40 the year after that.  We are also excited to be adding Tim Howell as Clinical Education Coordinator to help manage this growth at our clinical sites!

Hoping you have a safe and Happy New Year!
