William Paterson University boasts noted athletic training faculty


Individuals who are passionate about sports, but who have no desire to enter the field as a player, may want to consider careers as athletic trainers. This profession combines aspects of sports management and physical therapy.

Robb Rehberg, who is the Coordinator of Clinical Education for the Athletic Training Education Program at William Paterson University, was given the highest honor the industry offers in New Jersey. He was selected as an inductee into the Athletic Trainers' Society of New Jersey's (ATSNJ) Hall of Fame.

"Robb has dedicated himself to the profession of athletic training and served our membership well," said Eric Nusbaum, ATSNJ president. "He has been committed to improving athlete safety on various fronts from concussion management and education to overall healthcare issues."

Over the past several years, Rehberg has served as the governmental relations coordinator, the executive-council, on the public relations committee, on the technology committee and as a northern regional representative for ATSNJ. He played an important role in the revision of the athletic training licensure act in 2008 and received ATSNJ's Distinguished Service Award in 2009.
