Research

Athletic training is a profession with many disciplines:
  • Medicine
  • Physical and biological sciences
  • Sport, biomechanics, and exercise science

Successful practice as an athletic trainer requires a versatile approach to research and practice emphasizing the correlation between the physical body, human behavior, and medical technology. Idaho's athletic training  programs engage in research that can transform health care.

Each faculty maintains a balance of clinical and laboratory research and serve as mentors in student led projects.

The National Institute of Health has identified Translational Research as a method of doing interdisciplinary research that brings together clinical and laboratory research to solve world healthcare challenges. Students and faculty use a translational research approach to improve knowledge in musculoskeletal medicine. Doctorate students will have the opportunity to conduct research directly related to improving clinical practice.

Master's and Doctoral Athletic Training students and the doctoral students have an opportunity to be part of this translational research team and be actively engaged in the research. Previous students have received grant funding to support their research and have published and presented their research findings at professional conferences and in academic journal.
