Learning Formats and CEUs

During the in-person 74th NATA Clinical Symposia & AT Expo, you will have the opportunity to earn up to 20 CEUs.

You will have the opportunity to choose from among multiple sessions including lectures, interactive lectures during which presenters will engage attendees by including videos, demonstrations, small group discussion and/or interactive polling during the session. 

Multiple learning labs will be offered allowing attendees to participate in hands-on, practical experiences. Free Communications Oral Sessions allow for quick chunks of learning to happen with 6 minute presentations.

And, onsite posters will return to convention along with the chance to chat with poster presenters. The posters allow the opportunity to learn about the latest in athletic training research.

Convention is your chance to engage face-to-face with your peers, speakers, researchers and thought leaders. In-person attendees will also be able to watch select content on-demand. Attendees will be able to earn up to 20 CEUs based on what they attend at convention combined with their viewing of on-demand content.
