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 then required to advance through their next skill level at the end of their first year. During this time, their position will become more permanent. Once this level is completed, students will be eligible for a pay raise.
In addition to weekly scheduled work times, students may work during several holidays. This will require some travel, attendance during preseason fall camp (usually 3+ weeks, including weekends), and work during the fall season (15-20 hours/week, including most Saturdays), winter season (7-12 hours/week, may include nights & weekends), and spring season (10-15 hours/week, includes some Saturdays). You will be required to be 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 emergency procedures, instructs taping techniques, and conducts CPR-AED re-certification.
