The Department of Health Sciences offers an undergraduate major in Sports Medicine. As the world of sports medicine has grown, so too has the sports medicine program at Merrimack since its beginning in the late 1990s. With majors in athletic training and sports medicine (concentrations in pre-physical therapy as well as strength and conditioning), students prepare for careers as strength and conditioning coaches, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, athletic trainers, nutritionists and many more. An intensive, science-based curriculum prepares students for the next step in their careers, and exposure to a wide selection of sports medicine experiences allows them to best decide their career path. Students take practicum courses and internships to afford them opportunities in gaining clinical skills, knowledge and competence in their field of study.
