Peer Review Yes

Abstract/Notes The clinical education of the chiropractic intern can be enhanced by participation in an off-site treatment experience. A well planned and coordinated effort results in a win-win-win experience for the intern, the profession, and the patient/athlete. The supervised off-campus treatment of athletes at running road races and track meets has proven to be an excellent learning opportunity for interns, allowing them to apply their interpersonal, diagnostic, and treatment skills to an interested public. Following completion of a three-module qualification program, interns are selected to participate in off-campus events. A student-run sport science club administers all these modules. Module 1 covers paperwork procedures and protocols that include tracking the paper recording flow, patient flow, and emergency procedures. Module 11, risk management, underscores the necessity of accurate record keeping, in formed consent, treatment of minors, and issues regarding impaired judgement. Module 111 involves researching and summarizing a joint-related injury or sports-related condition. This research is placed in a common file for future reference by club memebrs. Completion of all three modules is necessary before an intern can provide care at an event. An option is available, and encouraged, for the lower-trimester students to attend events in a chiropractic assitant capacity to manage patient intake and paperwork. A 13-question Likert scale survey was used to eveluate aspects of this treatment experience. Additional space was provided for written comments. This experience has been a peak learning educational experience for the interns. They have had the opportunity to interact with new patients and see the immediate impact their treatments have had on the patients. This has proven to promote their self-esteem and confidence in their blossoming skills.
