Sports Medicine Internship

UC Santa Cruz Athletic Training accepts a limited number of UCSC undergraduate interns. Interns will be accepted only in the Fall. Please see below for instructions if you would like to apply. The application period is currently closed.


The UCSC Sports Medicine Internship offers students who are strongly interested in entering the healthcare field with the opportunity to learn more about Athletic Training and Sports Medicine through clinical and academic experiences with the Intercollegiate Athletics Athletic Trainers on campus. The potential candidate will work directly under the Certified Athletic Trainers and be exposed to administration, physicians, and other allied healthcare professionals. Our goal is to teach the intern the skills needed to function and interact in a healthcare setting. We also strive to provide our interns with hands-on clinical experiences while providing them with a foundational knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and athletic pathologies.
