"Improving the Day to Day of Athletic Healthcare"
2019 International Experience: Greek Influence on 
Sports and Sports Medicine
Are you looking to provide and international experience for your ATEP?  The Institute for Collegiate Sports Medicine has prepared a unique athletic training and cultural experience focused around the Greek (both ancient and modern) Influence on Sports and Sports Medicine.

​Some schools just provide this as an opportunity for them to experience with other students from around the country, some incorporate into an independent study, some look for university funding sources, some incorporate into a 1 credit class, some substitute this as a humanities class.  Lots of options for you to consider how your students (and yourself) can experience this program.
