Athletic Training – General Medical Conditions

Athletic Training – General Medical Conditions

Athletic trainers may not need to diagnosis or treat general medical conditions, but there is a chance they may encounter these conditions in their patients and should be prepared to recognize them. 

In a lecture titled "Systemic Disorders," Cedarville University professor Michael Weller introduces systemic general medical conditions that are found within an active population. Specifically, he covers diseases of the lymphatic system, including cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, fibromyalgia, and hypo- or hyperthyroidism.



Prof. Weller was also featured as a 2021 guest on the Cedarville Stories podcast.

Cedarville University offers a Christian Master of Athletic Training degree program that equips graduates to pass the National Athletic Trainers Association - Board of Certification (NATA-BOC) national exam to become a Certified Athletic Trainer. Cedarville also offers a Sport Medicine + M.A.T. that allows students to complete a bachelor's in sport medicine and Master of Athletic Training in just five years.
