Certified Athletic Trainer Residency

Emory Sports Medicine Center is one of only four athletic training residency programs in the country that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The Emory Athletic Training Residency is a one-year position starting the fourth week of June and concluding the first week of July the following year. There is a $30,311 per year stipend for the position, which also includes medical and dental benefits, retirement matching, and professional dues and fees. The athletic training residency consists of clinical, OR responsibilities, and possible outreach opportunities. The ATC resident will rotate between three surgeons and a group of non-operative physicians on a monthly basis. Once state licensed, and certified as an Orthopaedic Technologist, the residents will complete a course in aseptic technique, learning how to work in a sterile environment. Through their experience working as a first assistant in the OR, they will learn operating room skills from sterile techniques to assisting the physician with patient positioning, positioning of the arthroscopic camera, tissue retraction, suturing, and sizing/preparation of previously harvested grafts. Other responsibilities will include conducting and presenting research, working closely with staff radiologists to understand and interpret imaging studies, and attendance at journal clubs and grand rounds. There are also opportunities to work with Emory Physical Therapy to understand step-by-step clinical rehabilitation, and a variety of PRN outreach opportunities working with local high school and collegiate athletics for additional compensation.
