Athletic Medicine Interships
Athletic Medicine Intern Positions available for University of Minnesota undergraduate students that are interested in Athletic Medicine/Allied Health Care professions
Approximately 25 Athletic Medicine Student Interns work with the 21 Certified Athletic Trainers to provide health care to the NCAA Division I Athletic Programs at the University of Minnesota.
The University of Minnesota Athletic Medicine Program does not offer the education program required for students to become Certified Athletic Trainers. However, this program does provide practical experience in athletic medicine and allied health care to students wishing to pursue careers in these fields. For more information on how to become an Athletic Trainer, please visit www.nata.org.
Certified Athletic Trainers are responsible for the prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Professional aspirations of student interns in this program include physical therapy, medicine, massage therapy, chiropractic medicine, sports psychology and exercise physiology.
Our student interns are asked to commit an average of 10-15 hours/week (can vary and/or increase depending on specific facility/sport assignment and time of year) during the academic school year. Preferred candidates can commit 2 or more years to the program and have availability several days a week after 1:00 PM (students that are assigned to football are asked to have availability from 6 AM - 12 PM as football practices in the mornings) and in the evenings and weekends. Athletic Medicine student interns are compensated each semester via a stipend that is deposited in to their student account (please note: this is added to your student account via a scholarship and may affect other financial aid you recieve).
Students interested in this program should contact Ronni Beatty-Kollasch at the number or email below for any further information. When submitting an application, include a copy of your current class schedule and upcoming semester class schedule (if available).

Please email with any questions regarding the program and/or the application process.
