Athletic trainer

Since trading in a spot on the sidelines as a "traditional" AT for a cubicle at the national office in Dallas, Michelle Vryhof, MA, ATC, has continued to keep busy, from compiling research and assisting with event planning to offering her fresh perspective on NATA initiatives and events. This past weekend, Michelle joined staff, ATs and AT students for Capitol  HIll Day and the Youth Sports Safety Summit, where she participated in lobbying efforts and met with fellow Alliance members in Washington, D.C. Here's what she had to say about her experience.

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. One being a training room and the other being a clinic (outpatients PTs for the purpose of this article). 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?
