Athletic Training 3+2

Whether you want to work in professional sports, physician's offices, industry, military, or secondary schools, Lebanon Valley College's athletic training degree program will prepare you to help physically active patients to manage pain and bounce back from injury. This accelerated degree takes you from your first year to your master's in just five years.

LVC maintains clinical and educational relationships with Penn State College of Medicine, the Beijing Sports University in China, and professional sports teams. With so much to work with, it’s no wonder every graduate in our first two classes had a 100 percent first-time pass rate on the Board of Certification Exam, and scored 83 points above the national average.

In Their Words

The clinical education coordinator placed me in environments where I was able to adapt my skills and thrive in interpersonal connection and confidence. The experiences nurtured my skills into what they are today, which has helped me succeed in my current position.
