Faculty and students, and oftentimes alumni, of the athletic training program work collaboratively to produce and present research projects at local, state, regional and national academic and professional conferences - including NYSATA, EATA and NATA annual meetings. In the past few years, this has amounted to more than 90 projects as of this point in time!
Our small faculty to student ratio and sustained immersion in the program allow you to develop a unique relationship with our program faculty members. This results in an opportunity for you to develop and carry out a clinical or experimental research project(s) that will augment your education and improve your post-Ithaca plans (graduate school, professional school, etc.). Besides, what better way is there to learn and demonstrate what you know than analyzing a complex problem and synthesizing a novel solution that your professional peers accept as "new knowledge"? And then, sharing that new knowledge with the sports medicine world?
