Connecting Athletic Trainers and High Schools
A critical part of our mission at Athleticare Sports Health Foundation is to pair BOC-certified athletic trainers with underserved schools in need of athletic trainer support.
One opportunity open to schools, physicians and athletic trainers is the Athleticare Foundation program, which allows BOC-certified athletic trainers to pursue their Master of Science Degree in Applied Exercise Science with a concentration in Sports Medicine through Concordia University Chicago, while gaining real life experience through placement at a school in need of support. Athleticare fellows will also have the opportunity to be paired with physicians for on-the-job shadowing as a physician extender during their 2-year term in the program.
Fellows will be placed in schools to provide preventative services, emergency care, therapeutic intervention, diagnosis and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions affecting the student athletes we serve.
