Sports Medicine Student Employment

We are currently looking to fill five (5) student employment positions for next academic year (2014-15).

For those who may be interested in employment in the Sports Medicine program, please read below to gain a better understanding of the position.

The student athletic training assistants at Kutztown University serve as an invaluable resource to the Sports Medicine program. Students work with our professional staff to provide the highest quality of care for Kutztown University athletes.

Students are hired for an initial 45-day probation period, which includes completing certain professional skill requirements. Once completed, it will be determined whether the student has the requisite abilities to continue working in our program. Students are may then advance through their next skill level and should be able to do this by the end of their first year.   Once this level is completed, students will be eligible for a pay raise.

In addition to weekly scheduled work times, students may work during weekends and several holidays.  Typical hours of work are between 1pm-7pm, Monday -Friday, so students with classes primarily in the afternoon will have difficulty getting hours. This position may also require some travel, mandatory attendance during preseason fall camp (usually 2+ weeks prior to the start of the fall semester, including weekends), and work during the fall season (10-15+ hours/week, including most Saturdays), winter season (7-12 hours/week, may include games at night & weekends), and spring season (10-15+ hours/week, includes some Saturdays). You will be required to become certified in both First Aid & Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation & AED (CPR/AED) within your first four months of employment. This position requires dependable attendance and satisfactory academic progress (2.5 GPA).

During fall camp, the professional staff reviews program policies & procedures, emergency procedures and helps in your development and proficiency of skill in your specific level.
