Gross Anatomy with Amherst High students
Students from Amherst High School got an up-close and personal peek into the world of anatomy when they visited the UW-Stevens Point Department of Athletic Training on Friday, Dec. 2.
Sara (Becker) Pate, ’01, a teacher and Licensed Athletic Trainer at Amherst, brought her Anatomy Physiology class to her alma mater for a special Athletic Training Day. The students got to meet “Buddy,” a cadaver, where Licensed Athletic Trainers Greg Marty, ’11, gave an overview of organs, muscles, ligaments and tendons.
Eight UWSP Athletic Training students also demonstrated the various domains of athletic training, including prevention, emergency care, orthopedic evaluation, rehabilitation and modality care. In addition, the AHS were able to explore athletic training apps on iPads such as CORE Exam and iMuscle.
The UWSP Athletic Training Education Program continues to achieve a 100% pass rate for the Board Certification Exam, well above the national average of 57%.
