Hi, I'm Eliza Morales!

Bryn Cortez, 3rd year  in the Health Science - Pre Athletic Training Program, holds water on the football field.

5th year student in the Accelerated Master's of Athletic Training Program, Elizabeth Morales, assists UC football players.

I am in my 5th year of the Accelerated Master of Science in Athletic Training Program. I chose UC's MS AT Program because I was already on track to enter the 3+2 program. I also loved being in Cincinnati and didn't want to leave! The professors and relationships I have built at UC made it clear to me to not even consider searching for another program.

UC grad heads to Super Bowl as Bengals assistant head athletic...

February 8, 2022

Dan Willen, the assistant head athletic trainer for the AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals, graduated from UC in 1998 with a degree in health promotion with an emphasis on athletic training. That program would be part of the formation a year later of the College of Allied Health Sciences. One of the reasons Dan, who went to high school in Dayton, OH, chose UC is because his dad graduated from the aerospace engineering program at UC in 1968 and did his co-op at NASA during the height of the manned missions to the moon.
