  • Description: This study uses the theoretical framework of socialization to investigate the influential factors behind the postgraduation decisions of senior athletic training students (ATS). The study conducted Web-based management system and telephone interviews. The study participants were 22 ATSs who graduated in May 2010 from 13 different programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. Two higher-order themes emerged from the data analysis: persistence in athletic training (AT) and decision to leave AT. Faculty and clinical instructor support, marketability, and professional growth were supporting themes describing persistence in AT. Shift of interest away from AT, lack of respect for the AT profession, compensation, time commitment, and AT as a stepping stone were themes sustaining the reasons that ATSs leave AT. The aforementioned reasons to leave often were discussed collectively, generating a collective undesirable outlook on the AT profession.
