AT Program Plan of Study
Starting Fall 2021 we are excited to have our new MSAT curriculum! This curriculum approach education in a modular apporach. This approach combines assessment, diagnosis, and therapeutic intervention around body parts. Students now “close the loop” of assesseing and treating an injury in one course as opposed to having seperate and disconnected evaluation, modaility, and rehabiltiaton courses. This approach is much more clinically realistic and aligns better with current learning and teaching theory.
In addition, the MSAT is offering two 8-week courses which are the only such course being offered that we know of:
KIN 623-Detection and Correction of Functional Movement Patterns in the Physically Active Population will give students a chance to dive deep into biomechanics, gait patterns, throwing mechanics, posture assessments, and other skills which are invaluable in asessement, rehabilitation, and return-to-play.
KIN 624- Assessment and Treatment of the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex will give students an intensive and deep look into one of the most difficult and challenging areas of dysfunction and rehabilitation for students. This course is unique to our MSAT and will give our students skills and knowledge that will set them apart in their future employment.
