The Sports Medicine: Orthopedic Patient Care minor focuses on orthopedic and rehabilitation classes and is designed for students interested in fields such as athletic training, orthopedics (orthotists, prosthetist), orthopedic physician, chiropractic, physical and occupational therapy.
The program's curriculum covers musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology, patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment techniques for common musculoskeletal injuries.
Admission to a minor is open to students declared in a bachelor’s degree, the A.A.B. or A.A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree (not Individualized Program major). Students declared only in the A.A. or A.S. degree or the A.T.S. degree in Individualized Program may not declare a minor. Students may not pursue a minor and a major in the same discipline.
To declare this minor, students must have attempted a minimum 12 credit hours at Kent State and earned a minimum 2.000 overall Kent State GPA. Students who have not attempted 12 credit hours at Kent State will be evaluated for admission based on their high school GPA for new students or transfer GPA for transfer students. Transfer students who have not attempted 12 credit hours of college-level coursework at Kent State and/or other institutions will be evaluated based on both their high school GPA and college GPA.
