We offer internships during our summer sports conditioning program. (Limited hours may be available at other times throughout the year.) Our interns help out with a great deal of training high school athletes. The training is technique-specific so it is a great opportunity to learn about the mechanisms of ACL injuries and how to prevent these injuries. We also do pre and post sports injury testing on the athletes we train and use the data for research. Our interns are fully involved in testing and will also be asked to read research articles and participate in journal clubs. Beyond that, we give our interns tasks involving everyday upkeep of the Sportsmetrics program, including data entry, literature reviews and contacting our national sites. You must be comfortable working with athletes as a team and individually to excel in this internship.
