Faculty and Departments

Athletic Training

Athletic trainers are on the front lines collaborating with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnoses, therapeutic interventions and rehabilitation for athletes and active patients. Our faculty provide extensive immersive clinical experiences that prepare students for the Board of Certification exam and a career as an athletic trainer.


In 2015, Pacific launched the first accelerated doctor of audiology (AuD) program in California. Under the guidance of our faculty, students learn to harness state-of-the-art technology to transform the way their patients experience and interact with the world. Right from the start, our AuD students work directly with patients in the clinic conveniently located on campus.
