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.




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, with an emphasis on musculoskeletal assessment and diagnosis.


Each candidate will be provided with rotation-specific competencies and objectives he/she will be required to meet throughout the course of their residency experience. Each candidate will be evaluated to show proficiency in a specific skill or concept throughout each area of focus. These will be administered in the form of hands-on demonstration, self-assessment or written comprehension at mid-rotation and end-rotation evaluation meetings with each specific preceptor. Two athletic training residents will be accepted for the 2016-2017 UW Health Athletic Training Residency Program.


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




Athletic Training Residency applications will be accepted starting January 2016.




UW Health Sports Medicine is currently seeking accreditation for its Athletic Training Residency program, and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) at this time. The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the accreditation process on July 1, 2016. Submission of the self-study and completion of a site visit does not guarantee that the program will become accredited.
