The mission of the UW Health Athletic Training Residency Program is to prepare the athletic trainer to be a complete and versatile health care provider within the orthopedic clinic setting, with strong emphasis on research coordination and implementation.




The UW Health Athletic Training Residency Program has the vision to become one of the premier preparatory programs in the country for athletic trainers in the orthopedic clinic setting.


Candidates will be provided with a list of specific goals and objectives they will be required to meet throughout the course of their residency experience. Candidates will periodically be asked to demonstrate proficiency in a specific skill or concept throughout the course. These will be administered in the form of hands-on demonstration, self-assessment or written comprehension. Two athletic training residents will be accepted for the 2014-2015 UW Health Athletic Training Residency Program.

The program directors, medical director, and athletic training preceptors will be expected to provide ongoing feedback throughout the residency. Candidates will be provided formal feedback throughout each rotation and at the completion of the residency program.




Athletic Training Residency applications are currently being accepted. Please see our Qualifications and Application Materials section.
