Well said villiarp. BrainDrain are you still an undergrad? If you are a sophomore or junior you should look into becoming a student athletic trainer for one of your school's teams. You probably will be a volunteer, but this EC along with Anatomy/Physiology, and other clinical stuff should show your true interest in medicine. During medical school, you should make contact with the physicians that work with the athletic team of your choice at the respective undergraduate institution. From there, they can describe the path they took and make suggestions. If you are older than a junior, you could just find out who the team doctors are, e-mail or call & set up a lunch meeting to discuss your goals. Good luck!!!Originally posted by BrainDrain
This would be an amazing job! I imagine you would travel with the team and treat injuries like fractures, muscle strains, concussions, etc.
