TAMUCC athletic trainer program one of the tops in the nation

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

It's National Athletic Trainers Month and TAMUCC has one of the best programs in the country. With the demand for athletic trainers on the rise, almost 200 students have graduated with degrees in athletic training in the last 11 years. 

"One of the newest areas of growth is actually  going into the middle schools and young kids sports," said Dr. Mikaela Boham  "We see a lot of athletic trainers going into club sports, high school, collegiate and professional sports"

"Hands down, I firmly believe the Texas A&M Corpus Christi athletic training program is the best in the country," said Islander graduate and Tuloso-Midway athletic trainer Cody Smiley. "It was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone."

The theme during national athletic trainer's month is simple, "compassionate care for all athletes"

"We want to make sure they have the most successful career and also that they are successful later in life," Dr. Boham. "Eventually, a lot of our athletes stop being athletes and they become recreation athletes or weekend warriors. We want to make sure they can still walk when turn 50 and make sure they have a good quality of life"
