Emerging Practices

Athletic trainers have employment opportunities in a variety of settings. Traditional settings include the university/college, professional sports, and high schools. Athletic trainers are now employed in settings such as performing arts, military, law enforcement, government, physician extender, hospital, clinic, industrial, and corporate.

The National Athletic Trainers' Association has created a committee specifically committed to emerging practices in the profession - the Clinical and Emerging Practices Athletic Trainers' Committee (CEPAT). The committee has developed numerous tools to assist professionals in developing the knowledge and skills to select appropriate employment settings and effectively provide care in these settings.
