Thornton talks to athletic training majors.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 7, 2013 – Jim Thornton, president of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, recently gave a special presentation to athletic training majors at High Point University.

Thornton discussed leadership, professional service and the future direction of athletic training during the presentation. He also had the opportunity to learn more about HPU’s proposed Master of Athletic Training degree and HPU’s model for incorporating undergraduate students into the research process in the state-of-the-art Human Biomechanics and Physiology Lab.

“This was a great opportunity for our students to interact with such a prominent figure in athletic training and learn about leadership development opportunities,” said Dr. Nancy Groh, assistant professor of athletic training and clinical education coordinator. “Mr. Thornton doesn’t do many of these special presentations due to his very busy schedule, and we are honored to be one of the few programs he’s chosen to visit.”

Groh says she hopes HPU’s curriculum will be used as a model around the country to prepare athletic trainers for a dynamic healthcare system.
