Athletic Therapy and Training

Physical activity is a necessary part of daily life, but this same activity—be it in sport, leisure or work—can also lead to injury in any person, regardless of their fitness. An Athletic Therapist and Trainer (ATT) focuses specifically on musculoskeletal injuries and their prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

The Athletic Therapy and Training programme will equip you with the medical knowledge, clinical abilities, problem-solving skills, confidence, and practical experience you need to become an ATT. The course’s graduates are also recognised as ATT’s who can communicate and work professionally with patients.


I have really enjoyed the last three years of this course learning the skills to diagnose and treat an extensive range of injuries in both clinical and emergency situations. This has been done while still enjoying the college life that DCU has to offer. The course is now also providing me with the opportunity to travel to America to complete a five-month clinical placement at the University of Pittsburgh.
