JOB TITLE: Athletic Training Aide
The Wake Forest University Sports Medicine Department offers practical experience to a limited number of students interested in allied health care fields. The WFU Sports Medicine Department consists of a team Certified Athletic Trainers. They are responsible for the prevention, evaluation, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Student Interns work with Certified Athletic Trainers to provide general health care to all varsity athletic teams at Wake Forest University. Due to changes in educational standards by the National Athletic Trainers' Association, Wake Forest University can no longer offer a direct route to athletic training certification.
Students work on a daily basis under the supervision of the athletic training staff to assist with the care of the student athletes. They are given opportunities to interact with the athletes, and provide assistance with the treatment of injuries. Students assist with pre and post-practice treatments, practice coverage, first aid and all other team needs. Students also have the opportunity to observe and be involved with all aspects of the sports medicine coverage provided at WFU.
Students new to the program will work approximately 10 hours a week. Advanced interns may work approximately 20 hours a week and may travel with various teams. The experiences gained as part of the Sports Medicine staff are ones that will be with them for many years after graduation.
