    The Tulane University Sports Medicine Department is seeking qualified applicants to fill one Graduate Assistant Athletic Training position to work directly with football and track, field, and cross country. This position is one year in length with the option for renewal upon successful completion of the first year. Positions with football assignments will have a start date of approximately July 1, 2020.

    Successful applicants will be hard-working individuals who thrive in a fast-paced collegiate environment. Responsibilities include providing prevention, evaluation, rehabilitation, and documentation of illnesses and injuries, practice and game coverage, and maintenance of athletic training facilities. They will also possess communication skills that allow them to properly convey information to supervising sports medicine staff, including doctors and surgeons, as well as administrative and coaching staffs.

    Each graduate assistant has a choice in their course of study, but is encouraged to stay within a relevant field with a degree in Health and Wellness Management or Sport Studies.

    Each Graduate Assistant will be granted a tuition waiver, a living stipend, and a meal plan (up to $40,000/year). They will have access to academic support, and will be assigned a supervising certified athletic trainer who will provide guidance and mentor opportunities throughout their time at Tulane.

    In lieu of a cover letter, we are asking that you give answers to the following questions in 150 words or less:

    1. As a graduate assistant athletic trainer, there are many responsibilities. How would you manage the demands of graduate school and being an athletic trainer? Additionally, if you were struggling, what steps would you take to ask for help?
    2. A student athlete is scheduled for afternoon treatment with you for an injury that is limiting them in practice. They show up an hour late, how would you handle the situation?
    3. A student-athlete saw the head team physician for flu symptoms, the doctor tells you they are not to travel; however, your tennis coach still brings them on the trip. How would you respond?

    To apply for this position, send resume, references, and answers to the above questions to Ryan Larkin at rlarkin@tulane.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately, with an application deadline of November 30th.
