2018-19 ATSA annual high school workshops

June 7, 2019
Posted In: Arizona Campus, ASHS, Athletic Training, Events, Student Headlines

A.T. Still University’s (ATSU) Athletic Training Student Association (ATSA) has a long-standing tradition of hosting an annual high school workshop, where they invite high school sports medicine students from across the state to the Mesa campus to learn about athletic training.  These events have always been one of the highlights for ATSA and represents their primary fundraising effort. Feedback from the last several years has been excellent, and this year ATSA doubled their efforts and host two high school workshops to allow more schools to participate. 

The first workshop was held on Dec. 12, 2018. Approximately 60 students from six Arizona high schools participated in the workshop on knee ligament injury. ATSA members developed educational programming that included presentations on knee anatomy and common surgical procedures, and hands-on labs where students learned about acute care of knee ligament injuries and post-injury rehabilitation. ATSA students also conducted a musculoskeletal ultrasound lab, where they taught the high school students how to scan the knee to visualize the different anatomical structures.

The second workshop was held on March 19, 2019 in conjunction with National Athletic Training Month. Approximately 80 students from eight Arizona schools attended the workshop to learn about concussion management. Programming included presentations and hands-on labs to learn about baseline testing and sideline assessment, vestibular rehabilitation, and concussion acute care. The annual high school workshop provides opportunities for high school students who are interested in athletic training and healthcare careers to engage with providers and learn about new sports medicine topics through hands-on labs and interactive experiences. ATSA wants to thank all of the schools and students who participated and who helped make the 2018-19 workshops a success!
