Master of Athletic Training Program

The Master of Athletic Training program was granted 10 years of Continuing Accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).

The program’s comprehensive review was due July 1, 2020, and a peer review site visit took place in February 2021. The purpose of the peer review committee is to perform comprehensive programmatic reviews, including self-study reviews and on-site visitations, for all program levels for both quality assurance and quality improvement purposes.

The peer review team and CAATE found the Truman MAT program to have zero non-compliance issues with the standards and no factual re-writes that needed to be conducted. Based on these results, CAATE voted to grant 10 years of Continuing Accreditation, the highest honor for a comprehensive programmatic review. The MAT program will be listed as “active-in good standing.”

The purpose of the CAATE is to develop, maintain and promote appropriate minimum education standards for quality for professional, post-professional and residency athletic training programs. CAATE is sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.

At Truman, the Master of Athletic Training degree is a two-year program with cohorts beginning in July. The MAT program offers a high-quality education allowing students to work hands-on with a variety of patients. The Truman MAT program offers small cohorts to allow for more personalized instruction and learning opportunities. The program has an above average first-time pass rate on the national Board of Certification exam and a 100% job placement rate within six months of graduation. Truman graduates have secured jobs in the professional, collegiate, high school, clinic, hospital and dance areas of athletic training.
