This three day comprehensive workshop, held on the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens, is designed to expose the high school student to the field of sports medicine and athletic training. No previous experience is needed to attend. Students participate in either of the two educational tracks and will learn about the field of sports medicine.

This workshop is a hands-on program, allowing students to learn and practice new skills. At the end of the workshop, the student will return to his/her high school feeling more confident as an athletic training student aide.
