Become an Athletic Therapist

Study Athletic Therapy at NUMSS.

If you work with athletes, a degree in Athletic Therapy sets you apart from your competitors.

Athletic therapy is quite similar to physiotherapy in scope of practice with more focus on sports medicine. Athletic therapists use physiotherapy modalities, kinesio taping, braces & orthopedic supports, manual therapy, nutrition and therapeutic exercise to help athletes recover from injuries or to prevent injuries.

Athletic therapists are able to open their own private clinics or work for other clinics, rehab centers, gyms, and sports teams.

NUMSS graduates are able to work in all countries as athletic therapists, including Canada (all provinces), USA (all states), Europe, Asia & Africa.

In certain countries such as Canada, a number of private insurers cover athletic therapy.

NUMSS offers a one year 100% online Master of Science in Athletic Therapy open to all health professionals and those without a prior health education. Tuition is 3,300 EURO.

NUMSS AT is accredited by International Board of Certified Athletic Therapists. NUMSS graduates are eligible to join IBCAT upon graduation. However membership in IBCAT or any other athletic therapy association is optional and it is not a requirement to practice.

Many athletic therapists in Canada, USA, Europe and Asia practice without being a member of any association as athletic therapy is not a regulated health profession in any country.

By becoming an athletic therapist, you improve your services to your current patients if you are a health professional. If you are not a health professional, by becoming an athletic therapist, you enter an exciting health profession.

NUMSS MSc (AT) program can be taken as a dual degree with our MBA in Health Care or the Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) or the Bachelor of Science in Osteopathy. Dual degree programs allow you to obtain two degrees at the same time while saving on tuition.
