ATCs and DPTs

There is much overlap between ATCs and DPTs as far as treating athletes/patients is concerned. The biggest difference is, obviously, the setting.

Yes, there are differences in education, areas of expertise, patient population, etc. However, outpatient-ortho PTs and ATCs really quite similar in the eyes of this author. The point I am alluding to is this: how is there not more cross-over between the two professions?
