  • Scholarship = Research

  • “Scholarship is what delineates a profession from a trade.”

Why is Scholarship Important to Athletic Training

  • Our standing as professionals is enhanced.

  • Standard of care provided is improved.

  • Our reputation, which is determined by what others see (or fail to see) in writing, is improved.

  • Change and progress will come because we focus on our problems rather than waiting for others to give us answers.

  • We gain prestige as others look to us for knowledge

  • Our claim as authorities on health care for the physically active is enhanced.
