Student Symposium and Leadership
The Athletic Training Student Symposium and Leadership promotes student educational opportunities at the RMATA Annual Clinical Symposium in conjunction with the annual clinical symposium coordinator. Students are involved in an annual Quiz Bowl, student activities while at the Annual Meeting, student socials, service opportunities, and community/school outreach activities. This committee is designed to develop student involvement in leadership opportunities and introduce students to committee work or cooperative efforts between educational programs.
The Athletic Trainer Student Committee is comprised of a Chair, who may also serve as a faculty representative, one faculty representative and two student representatives from each of the accredited athletic training programs. Representatives are chosen by their respective schools and all committee members must be members of the RMATA.
