Our Mission Statement

The mission of the UT Health San Antonio Athletic Training Residency is to produce advanced athletic training practitioners in sports rehabilitation who utilize an evidence informed and athlete centered approach to the evaluation, treatment, and sport specific return to play of injured athletes.

Program Overview

The UT Health San Antonio Athletic Training Residency specializing in Rehabilitation is currently seeking CAATE accreditation. This 12 month program begins in July and runs through the end of June. This athletic training residency program provides athletic trainers with advanced knowledge and manual techniques in sports rehabilitation with a focus on creating community leaders in athletic training. The residency includes a didactic program consisting of lecture and lab where residents will be learning advanced examination, treatment, and manual skills to enhance their practice. Residents will be placed at local high schools in the San Antonio area or at UTSA athletics. The residents will receive mentoring at their clinical sites by seasoned athletic trainers with specialized training in rehabilitation, as well as from certified sports and/or orthopedic physical therapy specialists who are fellowship trained in manual therapy. They will also have an opportunity to work with experienced sports medicine orthopedic surgeons, observing them in clinic and surgery.

We are seeking highly motivated athletic trainers who have a desire to work in a fast paced, multi-disciplinary environment. Residents should be self-motivators and able to handle a busy schedule. Residents will be employees of UT Health San Antonio which is a premier academic and research institution. Residents will receive a competitive residency salary and be eligible for full benefits.
