The UW Health Sports Medicine program offers a 12-month athletic training residency that is designed to provide the athletic trainer with a breadth of experience in the sports medicine clinical setting, as well as its orthopedic sub-specialty clinics. Our area of clinical focus is musculoskeletal assessment and diagnosis.


Two athletic training residents will be accepted for the 2018-2019 UW Health Athletic Training Residency Program.


Each athletic training resident will be provided with rotation-specific competencies and objectives he/she will be required to meet throughout the course of the residency experience.
