Research Topics

Franklin College MSAT students complete independent research in a topic of their interest. Independent research gives students an opportunity to explore, specialize and share findings of their clinically relevant research. While all students present their research on campus, past student research projects have resulted in peer-reviewed journal publications and presentations at professional conferences such as the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers’ Association Annual Meeting and Clinical Symposium and the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting.
