Mean Green Medicine

The North Texas Athletic Training program has produced many successful sports-medicine professionals. North Texas alumni practice in all disciplines of sports medicine, including high school, collegiate and professional athletics as well as private clinics.

The program is proud to have ties to six National Athletic Trainers' Association Hall of Fame members and is focused on developing its student athletic trainers into exceptional additions to the athletic training profession. By providing students with the clinical experience to accompany their academic foundation, each student athletic trainer develops the necessary qualifications to become a certified athletic trainer.

The Sports Medicine Center is sponsored by Fit-N-Wise, which is part of the Wise Health System and provides financial and medical support for our sports medicine program.

In 2005, the program moved into a new facility. The students and staff of the University of North Texas Sports Medicine Program provide athletic training services for each of the Mean Green's 300 student-athletes participating in 16 NCAA Division I sports.
