What is an athletic trainer:
Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes.
Athletic trainers are sometimes confused with personal trainers. There is, however, a large difference in the education, skillset, job duties and patients of an athletic trainer and a personal trainer. The athletic training academic curriculum and clinical training follows the medical model. Athletic trainers must graduate from an accredited baccalaureate or master’s program, and roughly 70% of Athletic Trainers have a master’s degree. https://www.nata.org/about/athletic-training
Training Room Philosophy:
The Training Room is a place where athletes can come to a safe environment for treatment or athletic injuries. Corey demands respect when athletes are in the training room, he wants the athletes to feel safe to talk to him about anything but also remember that this is a place of business not socializing.
