Fundamentals od Sports Medicine


Sign up for Fundamentals of Sports Medicine

if you'd like a hands-on class that will teach you techniques to help
others prevent and treat sports injuries. You might find yourself going
on to be an athletic trainer, physical therapist or other health care
professional by earning the appropriate college degree(s). Students in
the class learn about anatomy, first aid, CPR, vital signs, and the
prevention and treatment of sprains, strains and other ailments.
They get an opportunity to work side-by-side with a certified athletic
trainer and get a chance to decide if this is the field for them. The field
is expected to grow much faster than average through at least 2018.
