PROFESSIONAL FAQS - 2012 Professional Program Standards
Often physicians (orthopedic, internal medicine, etc.) who have private practices do not have written EAPs for their offices. Does the Standard 78 (2012 Professional Program Standards) for EAPs apply for physicians in private practice?
Yes, Standard 78 (2012 Professional Program Standards), as well as Standard 79 (The program must have a process for site specific training and review of the EAP with the student before they begin patient care at that site.) and Standard 80 (Students must have immediate access to the EAP in an emergency situation.) apply to all venues where athletic training students are placed for clinical education.
