At this point, my future professional goals are to become a certified athletic trainer and go to grad school to get my master’s degree in either kinesiology or exercise science. I’m hoping to find a GA program that will allow me to work as an athletic trainer at the same time as getting my master’s degree. I decided I want to get my Master’s degree immediately after undergrad because the whole field of athletic training is moving to a master’s degree and I want my degree to stay competitive. So far the schools I am interested in are Penn State University, James Madison University, and University of Texas. I decided to look into these schools because their programs seem advanced and enjoyable.
My dream work setting is in the performing arts. One in particular is Drum Corp International. My background of being in band in high school and my love of athletic training has been my main motivators to want to work with this kind of population. I feel like it would be so fun to travel with some of the most intense marching band in the United States. This summer I will be eligible to apply for an internship to work and study with athletic trainers in DCI. If I get this internship I will be ecstatic. This would be a stepping stone from leaving college and entering the work force. I would be able to make connections that hopefully would lead me to a job in this field after I graduate.
Another field of athletic training I would like to work in is the military, specifically for government contractors in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area. I would like this a lot because I would be able to live in the area the I have grown up in most of my life.
This week I had 15 attempts with 7 masteries.
This is where I do my weekly clinical blog assignment. There is either a prompt I am responding to, or I just talk about something exciting I saw during the week.
