UW Oshkosh Athletic Training Program Outcomes

The Athletic Training Major/Program undergoes review by the university's Committee on the Assessment of Student Learning every two years and annually by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) in order to maintain external accreditation for the major. Both of these processes focus on the overall assessment plan for the program and require us to analyze the following information as part of our overall assessment of our program's success.
