Universities, Colleges and High Schools
In 2020, universities, colleges, and high schools employed a combined 40% of athletic trainers who work in the profession.
In the traditional school setting, athletic trainers often experience feelings of being stretched thin, undercompensated, and underappreciated.
This prevailing culture poses a significant challenge for an industry seeking to attract and retain highly motivated and resilient professionals.
Athletic trainers have seen an increase in employment opportunities outside the traditional settings of high school and college athletics.
The increase of additional, potentially more enticing, employment opportunities puts a strain on the expectations that ATs working in the high school and college athletic departments have based on limited resources, such as budget, salary, outdated or overstressed facilities, and athlete population.
Strategies to improve working conditions for athletic trainers in traditional settings can be difficult to implement due to cost of hiring additional staff or systemic changes needed within the athletic department.
