Join George Wham, EdD, SCAT, ATC and Kembra Mathis, MEd, ATC as they discuss pearls for how to secure a team physician.
The relationship between an athletic trainer and team physician is critical to providing appropriate medical care in secondary school athletics. Traditionally, the agreement between the team physician and the school has often been vague and informal without a written document specifying the role, duties, and responsibilities of both parties.
