Queen’s Athletics and Recreation and the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies have collaborated to provide PHE and KIN students an enriched learning experience in the field of Athletic Therapy.
As Athletic Therapy Trainers, students work with a varsity team to acquire hands-on experience. They help assess and treat various injuries, work at varsity games, practice taping, and more. Qualified students compete for a limited number of positions and need to be enthusiastic, dedicated, and eager to learn. The mini-stream requires a strong commitment from students, as they are valued members of the Inter-University Sport Program.
In addition to a required theory course in second year, students will work with varsity athletes and teams acquiring valuable skills, applied knowledge, and invaluable experience over a three-year period for a total of 12.0 course units (see details below). Students receive a certificate from the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies (it will not appear on the student transcript).
Students apply at the end of first year to Level One of the mini-stream. To apply, students should:
1. Attend the Mini-Stream Information Session (2022 date tbc).
Level One (taken in second or third year).
Level Two (taken in third or fourth year).
Level Three (taken in fourth or a fifth year).
