The human physiology graduate program is designed to meet the needs of students who are creative, self-motivated, and possess a clear vision of their goals and aspirations.

The mission of the program is to facilitate the development of athletic training professionals with advanced clinical skills, who ask and seek answers to unique scholarly questions via original research as they integrate new knowledge into their evolving clinical philosophy.

The result is clinicians who self-assess, critically evaluate new ideas, think creatively, and integrate scientific evidence into clinical practice.

The primary goal of the MS degree is to provide classroom and clinical experiences that will allow entry-level athletic trainers to grow into professionals with the experience and confidence to be great clinicians.

Providing students with advanced clinical skills is the main point of distinctiion, but the program also provides students the opportunity to grow as a leader, a teacher and a researcher.
