Overview

The Wright State College of Education and Health Services is in the process of proposing a new master’s degree program in athletic training (AT). The initial class is scheduled to begin in the Summer of 2019 culminating in a Master’s of Science degree in Athletic Training (MSAT) as specified by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). In 2015, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Strategic Alliance established the professional degree in AT at the master’s level. Institutions wishing to establish an entry-level, graduate AT program (GATP) must do so by 2022. Wright State AT Program was initially accredited in 2002 and has a long history of producing excellent athletic training professionals.  Our current first-attempt Board of Certification exam pass rate is 90%, (three-year aggregate). The placement of our graduates in athletic training positions or continuing their education in an allied health care profession is currently at 100%. 

Athletic Training is defined as:

Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Students who want to become certified athletic trainers must earn a degree from an accredited athletic training curriculum. Accredited programs include formal instruction in areas such as injury/illness prevention, first-aid, and emergency care, assessment of injury/illness, human anatomy and physiology, therapeutic modalities, and nutrition. Classroom learning is enhanced through clinical education experiences. — NATA web site, 2015

Wright State University Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), located at 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, Texas 78731-3184.  The program will have its next comprehensive review during the 2021-22 academic year.

September 2015 - Brian Anderson from the Institute for Collegiate Sports Medicine visit Wright State ATP

Mr. Brian Anderson from the Institute for Collegiate Sports Medicine visited Wright State recently.  Although Brian was only on campus for less than 24  hours a lot was accomplished.  Brian had discussions with the ATP faculty and students about a fund raiser for Athletic Training Student Organization.  Look for more information coming soon, but we will be making EKG and echocardiogram testing available to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of the Wright State ATP.  Your insurance will be billed and a portion of the money collected come back to the Athletic Training Student Organization.

The fund raiser ties in quite nicely with an opportunity Brian sponsors a study abroad opportunity.  The trip takes place over Spring Break 2016 and this years trips is the Greek (both ancient and modern) Influences on Sports and Sports Medicine.  Several of our students have expressed a strong desire to go on this trip.  Funds raised from the cardiac testing fund raiser will be applied to the cost of the trip which will help to decrease the overall costs to the students.  Although nothing has been determined yet, AT faculty also have an opportunity to make this trip. (Becky will probably pull rank and keep Siobhan and Scott at home!)

Finally, Brian made a formal presentation to the students entitled, Eating that Frog: Time Management for Students.  He offered them several good nuggets of information and tips to help them manage their time.

September 2015 - Athletic Training Research Projects for the 2015-16 Academic Year

The Athletic Training Program has 11 research projects underway this year.  Three of the projects are examining different aspects of sports-related concussions: 1. Comparison of Concussion Rate and Severity between Football Teams Wearing or not Wearing the Guardian Cap; 2. Comparing Concussion Rates and Severity Based on Virginia Tech Helmet Rating System;  3. Relationship between Football Helmet Fit and Concussion Rates and Severity. 

The new Dynavision unit purchased over the summer will be used in two studies: 4. Effects of a Physical Challenge has upon Dynavision Performance; 5. Comparison of Training on Dynavision with Concussion Vital Signs Performance.  

A second Concussion Vital Signs neurocognitive test battery study will be examining the Reliability of Concussion Vital Signs under Varied Conditions.  

There are two different studies making comparisons:  7. Functional Movement Screening Assessment Comparing Assessor Ratings from Three Different Skill Levels; 8. Comparison of Kinesio Tape, Rock Tape and a Sham Tape for Shoulder Function. 

The final three studies examine: 9. the Rate of Stress and Sleep Quality and its Effect upon Injuries/Illness Incidence and Recovery, use of improper nomenclature regarding 10. "Trainer" vs. "Athletic Trainer" in the Media: Occurrence Rate and Change Agents, and the final study is a continuation of a project done last year entitled 11. Intramural Sport Injury Rates.

Although students must design, conducted and complete a research project as part of their curricular requirements for the Athletic Training Program, they are not doing these project all alone.  The Athletic Training Faculty of Dr. Scott L. Bruce, Ms. Becky Bowers, and Ms. Sioghan Fagan will provide oversight and supervision of these students and their projects.
