Athletic Training, '15
Having the opportunity to play a sport at the collegiate level while obtaining a quality education was what set alumni Brian Greene’s sights on Castleton University. Serving as both a member of the Men’s Ice Hockey team and Athletic Training major, Greene credits the University with preparing him for a successful career post-graduation.
“Castleton’s Athletic Training program offers students the knowledge and skills required for becoming a certified athletic trainer,” said Greene. “The program gives you far more than what is required.”
Now pursing a post-professional M.S. in Human Physiology with a concentration in Athletic Training at the University of Oregon, Greene appreciates the close-knit community feel that Castleton offered, combined with the countless opportunities for clinical experience in the field, even in his early years.
“This affords us the opportunity to work with patients right away and develop the skills that can only be learned with repetition and experience,” he said, adding that by senior year he felt confident and comfortable functioning in the field. “If you work hard and take advantage of everything Castleton’s Athletic Training program has to offer the sky is the limit.”
