Daemen College Athletic Training (AT) Alumni Profiles

"Being selected by the NYSATA to attend an ATS leadership conference afforded me the opportunity to network with AT’s from Washington State University where I eventually took a post-graduate internship position with football. During my year-long internship at WSU I gained experience in Division 1 athletics where I want to focus my career. After completing my internship at WSU, I was hired as a full-time staff member at the University at Buffalo in charge of Men’s soccer and Track and Field. DCAT provided me with a strong educational base, real-life experiences, and the critical thinking ability to thrive in the AT profession.  DCAT also encourages professional development by getting involved in AT associations and networking with AT’s locally and nationally. In my opinion, this creates well rounded graduates with a strong work ethic and drive to better the AT profession."

 Lauren Duft, Athletic Training '13



“Daemen has given me the tools to succeed professionally not only in my career setting, but also as an advocate of the profession of athletic training by being able to produce quality research and being able to present at conferences on the state, regional and national levels.  Upon graduating in May of 2013, I was accepted into an Athletic Training Residency Program in Boise, Idaho, which game me specialized training on how to function in a physician extender role in the hospital, clinic, and operating room.  Since completing my residency in August 2014, I have now taken a position working as a physician extender to a knee and shoulder sports medicine surgeon in Virginia assisting him both in the clinic as well as in the operating room.  I have also been given the opportunity to work with the US Men’s Soccer program providing athletic training coverage for camps and tournaments across the country and world."
