    Im looking to go into a field involving sports medicine, but Im having trouble finding anything that isnt online. I hate online schooling.

    Anyone know of any good schools, or even a good way to find one?

    Prefferably East coast, but not necessarily.

    My physical therapist went to Quinnipiac University in Connecticut; several people have told me it's a good place.

    You might find more places if you check the websites for the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

    Good luck!

    Supposedly Washington state is good, but I don't recommend the Pullman area.

    It really depends on your interests and your individual goals to where you apply. Any big name school will have a program in exercise physiology, sports medicine, kinesiology or a similar title. I'm a grad student at WVU in nutrition and had classes with the exercise physiology students so I know some of their requirements. I'm an advocate of big name schools though because they usually have big sports teams which comes big facilities in sports medicine and exercise physiology.
