KAAP Featured Program
The University of Delaware had two female athletic training students interning for NFL teams – the New York Jets and Los Angeles Rams – during the summer of 2019. The UD Athletic Training department in the College of Health Sciences has had students accepted to NFL internships for years, but female ATs as NFL interns are on the rise. To top it off, UD has nine current athletic trainers working for NFL teams. Those alumni have been critical in helping to provide internship opportunities for current students.
