Are you interested in doing research? One of the senior level classes taken by athletic training majors is AT 481 Research in Athletic Training I. Students complete a semester-long research project and present it for publication. Students also have the option to register for a second research course (AT 482 Research in AT II). Many students have been selected to do poster presentations of their research at state, district, and national meetings. This course also prepares students well for graduate school should they choose to go on.
Each year most of our senior research projects are selected for poster presentation at the Ohio Athletic Trainers’ Associations (OATA) Annual Symposium. Students from all over Ohio present their research and compete for the “OATA Exceptional Research Award” for undergraduate students. A Wilmington College senior has won this award 7 out of the last 8 years.
