TriHealth Sports Medicine Athletic Trainers

TriHealth Sports Medicine Athletic Trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who work as part of the sports medicine health care team. TriHealth’s Certified Athletic Trainers (ATs) work under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other healthcare professionals, athletic administrators, coaches, and parents. They are essential in making sure athletes stay safe and healthy and serve as wellness educators for the community. ATs are an important part of TriHealth’s community outreach programs with local athletes and can be found in a variety of collegiate, high school and junior school settings.
