Role of Residency in AT – 553

Shandra Esparza discusses the Role of Residency in Athletic Training at the 2019 Trinity University Sports Medicine Workshop.

Are you adding depth?

What are residencies?

Same concept as a medical student… an opportunity to dig deeper and learn in a supervised environment.

Furthermore, residencies are a way to add depth to our skill set rather than just learning a little bit about more things.

Why do we need them?

To continue to keep ATs relevant we have to change with the population needs.
If we want to get out of the Athletics Model we must be willing to change our educational paths

Where will they lead us?

Into new practice settings

New skill sets

New Job Opportunities

Pharmacology in Athletic Training – 550

Katie Morneau Pharm D discusses ATs Role in Pharmacology.

What to know about Pharmacology

It is easy to get lost in the whole process of drug interaction.

Most secondary school ATs do not spend a lot of time dealing with the medicines our kids take.

However it is important to continually update your knowledge and understanding.

Katie understands who ATs are and what they do.
