symposium update

We have made the decision to move the CATS 2021 Spring Symposium to the summer.  Please save these new dates:  July 15-17, 2021.  We are looking into offering a hybrid program which will include a live session and webinar format but this is subject to change.  We will continue to monitor national and local health department recommendations for large group gatherings.   If necessary we will change to webinar format only.  If you are booking a flight, we recommend checking your airline's refund policy in case the live session is cancelled.  

We will announce registration rates, attendance number limit and other details at a later date.  

call for presentations

Currently, we are still accepting abstracts from members interested in presenting.  If you have already submitted there is no need to resubmit your information but let me know if you are still available on these new dates.       

Case studies should be 20-30 minutes long with time available for Q&A. Cases being submitted should be both challenging and unique from a management perspective for the college athletic trainer.  Ideas for topic presentations may also be submitted for review. Presentation times will be determined based on the subject.   Members who would like to recommend their team physicians can submit on their behalf. 

Please send an abstract or questions to jlee@collegeathletictrainer.org.  

If you are not sure about your topic, please feel free to email me a brief summary before spending time on a formal abstract.  Members being considered will be contacted directly by Scott Oliaro or Josephine Lee to discuss details. 

Abstracts should highlight main points of the case/topic and be less than one page.  Consider including the following information:

  • Case Summary 
  • Treatment
  • Conclusion/Outcome/Uniqueness
  • Learning Objectives

All college athletic trainers including head athletic trainers and assistant athletic trainers from ANY DIVISION are encouraged to submit an abstract.
