Committee on Practice Advancement

The COPA Committee is once again proud to support the Athletic Trainer as Physician Extender Workshops as part of the Annual Meeting & Clinical Symposia. This event will be held on Tuesday, June 23, 2015. In an effort to encourage the continued growth and usefulness of this workshop for athletic trainers across this setting, the event organizers are currently calling for abstracts from potential speakers to present on relevant topics at this year's workshops. Abstracts are being accepted for both the introductory track (aimed at athletic trainers who are new to or interested in the setting) and the advanced track (intended for athletic trainers who are experienced in this field). If you have interest in submitting an abstract, please return the completed abstract submission form or forward questions/concerns to Tara Soprano at no later than February 6th, 2015.

Clinical Opportunities in Emerging Settings Database - a FREE resource exclusive to NATA Members

The Clinical and Emerging Practices Athletic Trainers’ Committee has developed a  free, searchable Clinical Opportunities in Emerging Settings (COES) database for student clinical opportunities (internships) within emerging settings. The goal of this database is to allow students and members to search the database (by setting, state, district, etc.), providing them with a point of contact, facility information and requirements for clinical opportunities around the United States that meet their needs and interests. This tool is free to search and free to list your clinical opportunity.
