The mission of the Athletic Training Program at UNC Charlotte is to educate future athletic training professionals in the provision of high quality, culturally competent, evidence based care to improve health outcomes for physically active individuals and to advance healthcare understanding through research, scholarship, and service. UNC Charlotte is currently seeking accreditation for their new Athletic Training program and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the accreditation process on July 1, 2019. Submission of the self-study and completion of a site visit does not guarantee that the program will become accredited. Students that graduate from the program prior to accreditation WILL NOT be eligible to sit for the credentialing examination for athletic trainers and will not be eligible for licensure in most states.
