Because of the close connection between athletics and Athletic Training, many prospective students who express interest in the Southeast Missouri State University Athletic Training Education Program are also interested in participating in intercollegiate athletics. The ATEP does have a significant clinical component which requires a strong commitment on behalf of the student.
