Supervisory Preceptor Training Basics
First, A Little Background About Athletic Training
Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians in prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses.
Athletic trainers are licensed or otherwise regulated in 49 states; efforts continue to add licensure in California.
Academic curriculum and clinical training for athletic training students follows the medical model. Athletic trainers must graduate from an accredited baccalaureate or master’s program; over 70 percent of ATs have a master’s degree.
ATs provide medical services and an unparralleled continuum of care to all types of patients, not just athletes participating in sports.
Athletic trainers are the most qualified professional to provide daily care for student athletes; they are also the most capable person to organize and direct an athletic health care system for a secondary school. Relying on coaches, administrators or volunteers to provide these types of services puts the athlete, school and its employees at risk.
Many athletic trainers work outside of athletic settings; they provide physical medicine and rehabilitation, as well as other services to people of all ages. Learn more about where ATs work.
ATs commonly work with patients with asthma, diabetes, heart disease, obesity and other health conditions to safely improve their health and fitness.
ATs specialize in patient education to prevent injury and re-injury, which reduces rehabilitative and other health care costs.
