Current Areas of Research

The faculty members overseeing the program have a strong record of mentoring graduate and undergraduate student research. The faculty has an established record of research focused on understanding and developing effective strategies toward improving athletic training education and clinical practice. In addition, the faculty have established a record of research investigating factors that influence lower extremity function and injury risk and are active members of the Human Biomechanics and Physiology Research Laboratory, which serves as the primary research facility for the Institute for Human Health and Sport Science Research at High Point University.

The current areas of research include (refer to faculty web pages for more information on areas of specific research):
  • The role of clinical preceptors in transition to clinical practice issues involving novice certified athletic trainers.
  • The influence of a standard patient case on increasing self-efficacy of athletic training students performing a general medical evaluation.
  • Identifying anatomical, biomechanical, and neuromuscular factors that increase the risk of lower extremity athletic injuries in adolescent athletes.
