|Dr. Searson begins Preceptor training with|
While yesterday was mainly full of completing administrative duties, registering for classes, and going over policies, today Dr. Jim Mensch started the morning with an ATEP overview before Dr. Jeremy Searson trained all our new Preceptors that will be working with the undergraduate athletic training students.
The remaining schedule of orientation is filled with presentations from our team physicians, staff athletic trainers, sport dietitian, director of sports medicine, and athletic training faculty and doctoral students. We also welcome guests such as Chris Matlock, Director of Equipment for USC athletics, and Scott Rein, from the Institute of Western Surgery in China. Throughout the week, the new athletic trainers will also go through scrub training in order to prepare for surgery observations. This is a great learning experience that allows them to better understand the anatomy of an injury. We can't have work without a little play; we will be hosting a welcome luau to get to know everyone before Drs. Torres-McGehee and Searson conclude orientation with Graston Training.
