Sports Medicine Internships
Undergraduate Sports Medicine Internships
The Binghamton University Department of Sports Medicine offers practical experience to a limited number of students interested in health care fields. Athletic Trainers are responsible for the prevention, evaluation, management, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Student Interns work with Certified Athletic Trainers and Team Physicians to provide general health care to all varsity athletic teams at Binghamton University. Due to changes in educational standards by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, Binghamton University can no longer offer a direct route to athletic training certification.
Students in the Sports Medicine Department have the experience of working with a wide variety of men’s and women’s sports as they work in our two athletic training rooms. Student Interns work on a daily basis under the supervision of a staff athletic trainer and assist with the care of a particular team. Student Interns assist with taping, pre and post-practice treatments, therapeutic exercise programs, practice coverage, first aid and all other team needs.
Students new to the program will work approximately 15-20 hours a week depending on sport assignment and season. Advanced interns work up to 30 hours a week and may travel with various teams.
Student Interns are required to take HWS 325, “Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries.” The class is offered during the fall and spring semesters and is open to all students including freshmen. The class involves 3 weekly lectures and one lab period in the Events Center where students will learn hands-on practical skills.
Monetary aid, advancement in the program, and scholarships will be determined by academic achievement, knowledge of practical skills, and overall work ethic demonstrated throughout the year.
Post-graduate Sports Medicine Internships
We do not offer graduate assistant opportunities due to graduate school scheduling conflicts.
