The Steadman Clinic Athletic Training Residency offers ample opportunities to collect continuing education credits (CEUs) throughout the year. Academic sessions are regularly held to discuss a variety of topics that focus on the natural history, etiology, surgery, rehabilitation, and treatment of sport related injuries. In addition to academic sessions, there are numerous opportunities such as:
- scheduled athletic training journal clubs, symposiums, and community presentations
- orthopedic lectures
- general medicine lectures
- cadaveric labs
- athletic training and sport specific meetings
- access to the biomechanics bioskills lab
- access to the Steadman Philippon Research Institute database
The Steadman Clinic will also provide an education fund to the athletic trainer residents to advance their education by attending conferences, purchasing education material, or to help with the costs of yearly membership fees.
As an athletic training resident, you will be asked to complete and publish a case study or work on a research project. The Steadman Philippon Research Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping people of all ages physically active through orthopedic research and education in areas of arthritis, healing, rehabilitation and injury prevention. Athletic training fellows work alongside the SPRI staff, attending physicians, and with our MD Sports Fellows to complete their required case study or research project. To help complete your required project, the institute provides you with access to its cadaver and biomechanics laboratory, and its patient outcomes and procedures database.
