Program Description

Residency training in sports PT has undergone rapid growth over the past two decades. At this time of year there is a lot of interest from potential applicants regarding what opportunities are available and how their application could be more competitive. The purpose of this in-service will be to describe and contrast the demographics, motivations, and selection influences from the perspective off potential applicants and program faculty based on a survey of stakeholders last spring. Through statistical analysis we detected differences in the opinions of candidates and faculty. The presentation will focus on the motivations that cause an applicant to pursue sports residency training, the most important factors an applicant desires from the program, how participants want to access information, and what criteria are used for their selection.  The presentation will also highlight areas in which applicants and faculty under or overestimated the importance of a variable. Liberal time for Q/A will follow.
