Sports Medicine Minor


Return to Degrees, Minors, and Certificates Return to: Degrees, Minors, and Certificates

The minor in sports medicine is an excellent opportunity to attain a clinical understanding of evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of orthopedic and sport-related injuries or illnesses for students who don’t wish to pursue an athletic training degree. This would be a good choice for students majoring in pre-physical therapy, exercise science, physical education, or pre-medicine.

Students select 21 credit hours from the coursework below. Students must complete “ KIN 280 Basic Recognition and Care of Athletic Injuries (3 credits) ” before taking other ATP coursework. ATEP admission is not required. Students who obtain this minor are not eligible for board certification as an athletic trainer.

For more information, students should contact the ATEP director, Rachele Vogelpohl, at vogelpohlra@nku.edu.
