An Interactive Learning Experience: Emerging Clinical Skills for AT Professionals & AT Educators
38th Annual Sports Medicine Symposium
Tuesday, March 7, 2023
Central Connecticut State University Student Center,
New Britain, Connecticut
Central Connecticut State University’s annual symposium will focus on emerging health care skills for athletic trainers and athletic training educators. The program is designed to advance clinical knowledge and skills through hands-on interactive learning. Physician- directed didactics will provide the participants with advanced clinical knowledge in conjunction with hands-on skill sessions led by qualified health care providers. Small, interactive, and participant-centered practice sessions will ensure personalized assistance for competency development in the designated emerging clinical skills. Advancing the AT’s clinical skillset will ultimately benefit the care provided to patients served within the athletic trainer’s professional practice. This symposium will provide both knowledge and clinical application skills of suturing, joint reduction, and x-ray review.
Note: The methods and skills practiced within each session are for educational growth, and completion DOES NOT infer certification. Athletic trainers must practice per their respective state practice act, within the standing orders of their collaborating physician(s) and may require appropriate privileging documents (legal).
