John Harmon and I have spent a good bit of time together riding to meetings for GHATS. One time we began discussing things we wish they had taught us in college to help us succeed as an athletic trainer in the secondary setting. Budgeting, building relationships with vendors, insurance claim forms, student athletic trainer programs…they may have taught us something about them, but we could not recall lessons or courses on these topics. So we decided to share some stories and things we have learned. Nicole Cascia is going to be a rock star after hearing from so many experienced ATs about how to not fail.
