Certified Athletic Training Residency Program

Expanding knowledge and skills

Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedics Athletic Training ResidencyThe Certified Athletic Training Residency Program at Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center is designed to help athletic trainers expand their knowledge and diagnosis skills in musculoskeletal evaluation.

We aim for our residents to further their awareness in all aspects of sports medicine and to be able to work in a variety of clinical, surgical, research and educational settings.

We are one of seven programs in the country accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Many of our past athletic training residents have launched successful careers in athletic training following completion of our program.

Our affiliate system

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will be rebranded in late 2019 and will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.
