Welcome to Murray State University's Athletic Training Program. Our goal is to provide athletic training students both the didactic (classroom) knowledge and the clinical experience to pass the BOC (Board of Certification for the Athletic Trainer) Exam and become a successful entry-level health care professional in a variety of settings. Our faculty members present the most current and relevant information, supplying the tools needed to develop the student's clinical decision making skills.

The Athletic Training Program at Murray State University is closing due to budget cuts within the institution. We are hopeful that once our financial status stabilizes, we may be able to offer the program again in the future. For students who are interested in pursuing a career in athletic training: You are welcome to attend Murray State University and pursue a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. After obtaining your undergraduate degree, you will be eligible to attend a graduate school of your choosing to pursue a master's degree in Athletic Training. Contact Dr. Kristan Erdmann at with any questions you may have.
