Description

Using a mix methods survey design, all current Athletic Training Education Program Directors in the Fall of 2011 were surveyed to examine athletic training education programs’ educational methods and procedures that are being used to educate athletic training students in order to better prepare them for success on the BOC exam. Educational methods such as critical thinking, problem based learning and peer learning were examined on how they were being use to educate athletic training students. Program directors thoughts on their effect on success on the BOC exam were also examined within this study. Athletic Training Education Program procedures such as faculty makeup, entry process requirement, professional course content exposure and clinical education were examined within each ATEP and their determined effect on the BOC exam. Survey results suggested that different types of usage of these education methods and procedures are being used to educate ATS and that the effect on success on BOC exam for many of these education methods and procedures is unknown.
