Friendly but professional environment focused on quality care.
As a student athletic trainer, a regular day consisted of primarily with logging medical records of the student athletes. Most days also consisted of preparing any necessary materials for athletic practices from bandages and AED kits to water and ice as well as attending practices to administer first aid to any injuries. We learned a lot about administering basic medical treatment and keeping accurate medical documents. The athletic trainers whom we (the assistants) worked under were professional but friendly. The most difficult part of the job was simply enduring the elements, especially the cold football practices in the snow, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Getting to know the teams was the absolute best part of my three years there.
