Did you know that Seton Hall's Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) degree program has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education for more than a decade? Or that, for four years in a row, 100% of MSAT graduating students passed the national Board of Certification exam on the first attempt?
Join us to hear more about our MSAT program through a panel discussion led by a current student and a graduate of the program at the University's Graduate Open House on Saturday, February 24, 2018. Register to attend »
Meet the Panelists:
Taylor Beam is a first-year graduate student in our MSAT program. He is currently on rotation at Roxbury High School, where he works with the 2017 Newell Award National Athletic Trainer of the Year Joseph Koch and his student-athletes. Taylor will talk about this exciting clinical opportunity, his experience working with Seton Hall's Division I athletes this past fall, and his reasons for choosing Seton Hall's MSAT program.
Here's a preview: "I was drawn to Seton Hall University's MSAT program due to the opportunities I would have in the multiple clinical rotation sites and the networking relationships that I would develop with my preceptors and professors," Beam says.
Alumnus John Baker, MS, LAT, ATC, is the Director of Athletic Training at New Jersey Spine and Wellness, where he works with patient-athletes of all ages and abilities. He also contributes to the local community by providing seminars on a variety of topics, including alternatives to pain medication, concussion protocol, as well as exercise and aging. While he was a Seton Hall Athletic Training student, John completed clinical rotations at local high schools, Fairleigh Dickinson University, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
In his own words, Baker says, "As a Seton Hall MSAT student, I was prepared to hit the ground running upon graduation. The knowledge and experiences that I gained as a Pirate have set me on a path to succeed in a career that I love."
The "AT Day in the Life" panel session is a chance for those interested in athletic training to hear about classroom experiences, opportunities in the field, and reasons to choose Seton Hall's MSAT program.
