We recently welcomed new residents into our ATC Residency Program, and said goodbye to outgoing residents Kali Hartzold and Christopher Voller as they move on to bigger things.
During their last week at VSON, we had a chance to sit down to visit with Kali and Chris on the latest VSON podcast. Topics of discussion include what an ATC really does (did you know ATC's may assist during surgery?). Kali and Chris also reflected upon their year here in Vail & Summit County.
If you are considering a career as an ATC or you want to apply for an ATC residency, give this a listen.
Let's Meet Our Incoming ATC Residents
We couldn't be more excited about our incoming ATC Residents, who come from different parts of the country with the same goal.
OUR goal is to prepare these certified AT fellows with the experience and advanced knowledge (including diagnostic and evaluation skills) for a role in the orthopaedic/sports medicine clinical setting.
Let's meet them!
