Role of Athletic Training Student Aides

Athletic Training Student Aides provide much needed assistance to their Certified Athletic Trainers (ATC) and coaches. They obtain hands on field experience while aiding in the protection & treatment of the student athletes at their school, which will prepare them for their collegiate career. It provides an opportunity for involvement, networking and mentorship.

Workshop Expectations

The purpose of the workshop is to introduce core theory, concepts & applications of the Athletic Training profession to high school students. The goal is to educate each student on fundamental information relating to care & prevention, treatment & rehabilitation, and emergency care associated with athletics. There will be a combination of lectures & labs taught by Knoxville Orthopaedic Clinic Physicians & ATC’s.

What is Sports Medicine?

Sports Medicine is a career field dealing with injuries and illnesses of the athletic and physically active populations. Careers in Sports Medicine include: sports medicine physician, certified athletic trainer, sports psychologist, physical therapist, nutritionist, and massage therapist. Certified Athletic Trainers are allied health professionals who specialize in the prevention, recognition, rehabilitation, treatment and management of the physically active individual. They work under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other healthcare professionals, athletic administrators, coaches, and parents to form a complete healthcare team for the athlete. An ATC’s day may include preparing their athletes for practice by taping or bracing, evaluating and managing or treating injuries sustained throughout practices or games, and developing rehabilitation or conditioning programs for their athletes.
