ATHLETIC TRAINING AS A PROFESSION
The sports medicine program at East Mississippi Community College is a great way to learn more about athletic training. The program is helpful for those students who are interested in pursuing a career in athletic training or just want to learn more about the profession.

Students will cover team practices and home games in addition to traveling to away competitions with their assigned sport.
