Professor Goeckel

Carolyn Goeckel, M.A., ATC

Assistant Professor

Department of Athletic Training


My own clinical experiences inform my teaching, which integrates theory, subject matter & clinical application.

Employed by Seton Hall University since 1985, I worked as an ATC in the Department of Athletics and Recreational Services as head athletic trainer and assistant director of athletics for medical services.In 2000, I accepted a faculty position with the School of Health and Medical Sciences and served as director of clinical education for the Department of Athletic Training. I was appointed Department chair in 2001 and served in this leadership role through June 2015. Prior to my employment at Seton Hall University, I was in clinical practice as an athletic trainer at Hamilton Hospital. I began my career as head athletic trainer at Rutgers University, Newark Campus.

My professional research interest is in interprofessional education and practice in athletic training.
