In high schools, colleges and universities, professional sports programs, corporate and industrial sites, and sports medicine clinics, athletic trainers are managing patients' injuries and medical conditions. The athletic trainer specializes in injury prevention and evaluation, as well as the management of rehabilitation programs in physically active people.

The curriculum of the Athletic Training program was developed based on guidelines established by the Education Council of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. Towson University provides a combination of formal classroom instruction and clinical experience to prepare students to apply their health care skills in cooperation with medical and athletic personnel, coaches, parents, and others involved in physical activity.
