The Florida State University College of Human Sciences is a multidisciplinary academic unit that addresses the health and development of individuals, families and communities. The College offers 6 undergraduate majors, 5 masters’ and 4 doctoral programs within three academic departments: Family and Child Sciences; Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences; and Retail Management and Product Development.
Although the programs within the college are diverse, students graduate with an integrative approach in addressing societal concerns, critical thinking skills regarding issues affecting individuals and families, and fundamental competencies necessary to carry out professional roles. In addition, select programs require faculty-supervised internships, which provide students with the experience of applying theoretical and research knowledge in real-world settings.
In athletic training, a modality is a therapeutic method or agent that athletic trainers use for the physical treatment of a disorder. At this time the Florida State University Athletic Training teaching lab is only equipped with one medical modality for student laboratory practice. In order for the students to remain current and well versed in modality use and application, additional inventory is needed. The equipment purchased from this campaign would be used to educate sports medicine students today and those in the future as well. Patients and athletes will benefit from this enhanced knowledge and practical skill application in a variety of allied health care settings.
“For the athletic trainer, it is essential to possess knowledge regarding the scientific and physiological effects of modalities on injury. When applied to practical experience, it becomes an extremely effective clinical method." - Prentice, 2009
