Maryville College boasts an outstanding student athletic trainer program. Students who are interested in gaining valuable experience in sports medicine are encouraged to become involved in our program. Our program typically includes ten to thirteen student athletic trainers. Each student is evaluated on his or her abilities and given increasingly-demanding responsibilities based on his or her abilities. Unlike many larger programs, our students work with each of our varsity sports, beginning in the fall with football. Eligible students may qualify for student work-study through our office of financial aid. All of our students have the opportunity to gain additional experience by working at Appalachian Therapy Center. Graduates of our program have gone on to successful careers in athletic training, physical therapy, and various other areas of health care.
