The Professional Masters of Athletic Training degree (MAT) at Dixie State University, which will seek accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), is designed to prepare students to become athletic training professionals. Professional athletic training education uses a skills-based approach in both the classroom and clinical setting to provide comprehensive patient care in five domains of clinical practice:
- Clinical evaluation and diagnosis
- Immediate and emergency care
- Treatment and rehabilitation
- Organization and professional health and well-being.
