Written by admin on October 16, 2012 – 5:43 pm -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Dr. Mark Galland, a physician at Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina (www.orthonc.com/galland.html), has been named medical director of the Barton College Athletic Training Education Program, a Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) accredited program. As medical director, Galland serves as a resource to the program’s students and faculty for questions, topics, lectures and courses related to musculoskeletal medicine. By partnering with Barton College, Galland’s wealth of knowledge and experience in orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine will be available to the program’s aspiring athletic trainers and future health care providers.

Barton College is a private liberal arts college in Wilson, N.C., with a student population of approximately 1,130. Its athletic training education program is a four-year curriculum and is nationally accredited by CAATE. Accredited programs prepare students with an interest in sports medicine to work in the growing allied health profession of athletic training, which focuses on prevention, emergency care, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and conditions in physically active persons (not just athletes). Graduates of Barton’s program are qualified to sit for the national certification exam and must pass before being able to practice as an ATC (certified athletic trainer). You can find athletic trainers working on the sidelines of high school, college, recreational and professional sporting events, as well as teaching at all levels, researching, and working in the military, performing arts, industrial settings, hospitals, therapy clinics and doctors’ offices.

The Barton College Athletic Education Training Program has two components, a didactic portion, which is classroom-based, and a clinical education portion. The laboratory classes allow for hands-on practice of the theories learned in lecture classes where students utilize cognitive, psychomotor skill recognition. Faculty and staff ATCs serve as Approved Clinical Instructors (ACI’s) and supervise students during rotations. Students have the opportunity to work on clinical skills with an ACI during their clinical experience and are involved in the daily operation of athletic training in various settings during the field experience portion of their clinical rotations.

“I am honored to be named medical director of Barton College’s Athletic Training Education Program,” said Galland. “Students enrolled in the program have a strong passion for athletic training and are eager to learn how to be successful in the field. I am excited to share my expertise in orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine with the Barton College students.”
