Vision & Mission
Our vision is to prepare students to be members of the allied health care community as professional and ethical certified Athletic Trainers. As alumni of Alfred University, we expect our students to be innovative leaders and contribute to the evolving nature of the profession.
The mission of the Athletic Training Program (ATP) at Alfred University is to provide the student with knowledge, standards, behavior models, code of ethics, and skills needed as an Athletic Trainer. The professional program is based on a solid foundation in the allied health care arena, with a strong emphasis on the professional domains as outlined by the role delineation study.
Goals of the ATP Program are as follows:
Goal 1. Graduates of the Alfred University ATP will be able to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and abilities required of an entry-level athletic trainer through authentic, real-time opportunities as well as simulated practice.
Goal 2. Graduates of the Alfred University ATP will be able to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and abilities required of an entry-level athletic trainer as demonstrated by first-time BOC pass rates, retention, graduation rates, and employment/placement rate.
Goal 3. Provide students enrolled in the Alfred University ATP with opportunities to learn from qualified faculty and allied health care providers in a variety of settings thereby exposing students to individuals across the lifespan with varying levels of activity.
Goal 4. Ensure graduates of the Alfred University ATP are quality employees or students in a higher education setting who have the ability to collaborate with allied health care professionals and who are able to implement evidence-based medicine in their respective setting.
