Graduate educational offerings in sports medicine at the University of Delaware began in 2004. The program has since morphed into programs of study at both the master’s and doctoral level. Graduate students can also take advantage of a variety of graduate assistantship opportunities including clinical (athletic training outreach), instructional (teaching undergraduate courses), and scholarship (research venues). There is also potential to gain valuable administrative experience working with our CAATE accredited undergraduate athletic training education program.
At the master’s degree level, the graduate concentration in Sport Medicine provides a unique, interdisciplinary track of course offerings and research experiences related to the injuries and illnesses associated with participation in athletic endeavors and physical activity. This cross-concentration graduate program of study is one of four tracks offered by the Department of Kinesiology & Applied Physiology. It is expected that this educational opportunity will provide students with a highly rewarding and competitive alternative to the nations other leading Sports Medicine institutions.
At the doctoral level, students may choose either the interdisciplinary Biomechanics and Movement Science (BIOMS) program or the doctoral program in Applied Physiology offered by the Department of Kinesiology & Applied Physiology. Both program offer doctoral students a wide array of coursework and flexible options to fit their personal and professional goals.
