Extensive clinical and fieldwork experiences are provided so students can apply their knowledge and skills in practical settings and meet the practicum requirements for certification. Students will acquire the theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and the necessary prerequisites to become Certified Athletic Therapists.

Classroom lectures and well-equipped labs balance theory with hands-on learning, and a Faculty comprised of active researchers and scholars who teach in the areas where they lead in research. In this way, the program and Faculty will continue to innovate and diversify right alongside the dynamic field of Kinesiology.

Students have the flexibility to take additional courses or practicums that allow them to design an educational experience best suited to their interests. Students may obtain a variety of fitness-related qualifications and certifications that would complement their career aspirations.

What our Students Say

photo of caitlin williams at the University of Manitoba campus"A highlight so far has been all the amazing people I’ve met and the places I’ve traveled, while getting to study something I love. This is my second year working with the UofM men’s basketball team. Being with this team I recently traveled to Victoria, B.C. with them and earlier this year I traveled to Abbotsford, B.C. I feel so fortunate to be able to work with these athletes and to have met some of my best friends in this program!" -Caitlin Williams, Class of 2019
