NORTH MANCHESTER – Manchester University's Master of Athletic Training (MAT) program has been ranked first in the state by College Factual.
Five Indiana colleges and universities were ranked by their master's programs in athletic training. The ranking evaluates each institution's major focus, major demand, educational resources and accreditation, according to a news release from Manchester University.
Located at the university's Fort Wayne location, the MAT emphasizes interprofessional education and hands-on experience, offering clinical immersions, simulations, and work opportunities in concussion and orthopedic clinics. Students also complete a four-week clinical rotation in various environments including high schools, universities and industrial or occupational settings. The pass rate for the Board of Certification exam among Manchester MAT graduates is 91%.
"It is a true honor to be ranked as the number one MAT program in Indiana," said Lucas Dargo, MAT program director and assistant professor. "Manchester's small class sizes allow our students to have a significant amount of time to work one-on-one with faculty, and the program provides real-world experience in clinical education."
