In addition to your athletic training responsibilities, you are required to progress towards your chosen Master's Degree. In order to retain your stipend, you must be registered each semester. After the end of your first year, you must have completed 50% of your degree program for the assistantship to be renewed. All Graduate Assistants are expected to be in Auburn throughout their first summer to assist staff with clinical duties and camps.
Our sports medicine staff involves athletic trainers, team physicians, a clinical psychologist, and a nutritionist. We have a philosophy that is centered around sports medicine, but want to have a broad base of contributing "thinkers" in developing our program. We expect you to have input and involvement, and when choices or decisions are made we expect you to be a leader in carrying out the team approach to a problem.
With the help of our full-time staff, graduate assistants will learn about the administration of a team, a medical system, and other business aspects of athletic training and sports medicine. Throughout this process we hope to better prepare you for a fulfilling and accomplished career in Sports Medicine.
