The Graduate Certificate in Musculoskeletal Injury Management is designed to provide advanced education and clinical experience for credentialed clinicians (i.e. Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physicians, Physician Assistants, etc) that manage injuries in physically active populations. Graduates from our program will emerge as advanced clinicians with post-professional knowledge and clinical experience that will be highly competitive for positions providing healthcare services in a variety of employment settings (i.e. traditional athletics, physician’s clinic, out-patient rehabilitation setting, occupational setting).
Musculoskeletal injuries are the most common injury sustained in the physically active population. This post-professional graduate certificate focused on these conditions will be especially important for sports medicine professionals, such as athletic trainers. Students will receive focused coursework that provides advanced didactic education related to mechanisms of musculoskeletal injury and current evidence for clinical management of these conditions. We will couple this with hands-on laboratory learning that will advance the learners knowledge, skills and abilities related to evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
