GEORGETOWN, KY – The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Educators (CAATE) has awarded Continuing Accreditation to Georgetown College’s Athletic Training Program.

“Your program has met all of the nationally-recognized Standards for the Accreditation of Professional Athletic Training Programs,” wrote R. Mark Laursen, President of CAATE, in a letter to Georgetown College President Bill Crouch, dated May 20, 2013, adding, “The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education commends the faculty, staff, and administrators for your commitment to the advancement of quality education in Athletic Training, as well as your dedication to the preparation of highly qualified Athletic Training professionals.”

The Continuing Accreditation comes as a result of a comprehensive evaluation of GC’s Program, including a self-study and an on-site visit. Standards established by CAATE have the support of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, Inc.
