Tell us about the most valuable portions of the Athletic Training program.
Looking back on the Daemen Athletic Training program, I believe some of the most valuable portions are the strong anatomy background that many other programs don’t receive and the diversity of clinical rotations. Being able to work with a multitude of different professionals better prepares you for the real world, where every job you go to is going to be different than the last.
Tell us about where you are now.
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. In addition to physician extending, 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 the world.
Would you recommend this program to a prospective student?
I would absolutely recommend Daemen’s Athletic Training program to anyone! With small class sizes, it allows you to receive high quality education and plenty of hands-on time in labs. Being able to succeed in a variety of different settings is a testament to the strong educational background received at Daemen.
