Health care is a dynamic profession that requires current application of specific, specialized knowledge. Certifying and licensing associations facilitate such application by requiring continuing education from their practicing clinicians and educators. As health care professionals, certified athletic trainers have become increasingly interested in evaluating their professional practice with more emphasis on evidence-based practice and research. These student papers address Current and Potential Practices in Athletic Training and hopefully demonstrate the need for continued education and sharing among a variety of clinicians and educators, all equally interested in quality health care.
