As a health care provider, it is important to stay current in today’s practices and research. Most professionals achieve this through continuing education courses and conferences. Recently, the Minnesota Athletic Training Association hosted their annual meeting in Plymouth. Athletic trainers from across the state of Minnesota, including OSR Physical Therapy athletic trainers, attended a two day conference made up of speakers, presentations and awards.
The Minnesota Athletic Trainers’ Association is an allied health professional association dedicated to enhancing the quality of health care for the physically active through the promotion of professional growth, educational enhancement, as well as, the recognition of the certified athletic trainer and their value as health care providers. Below is a link to the MATA website for further information:
The MATA Annual Meeting is a great educational resource. Professional networking amongst peers and the state’s top orthopedic and sports medicine physicians is another benefit for athletic trainers at this meeting. Some notable presenters from this year’s meeting were:
Brad Nelson, MD – University of Minnesota team physician
John Steubs, MD – Minnesota Twins team physician
Mike Freehill, MD – Sports and Orthopaedic Specialists
Rob Johnson, MD – University of Minnesota team physician
Through conferences and education courses such as the MATA Annual Meeting and Symposium, OSR Physical Therapy athletic trainers stay current in today’s practices to provide the highest quality of care to their patients.
