Program Faculty Awarded Research Grant

The faculty of SLU Athletic Training Education Program applied for and was awarded a research grant by the Mid-America Athletic Trainers' Association (MAATA). MAATA is also known as District V of the National Athletic Trainers' Association. Darcy Downey is the primary investigator in the project titled: "Self-Efficacy, Locus of Control and Coping: Do These Factors Affect a Student’s Ability to Pass the BOC Examination?"
The project will use an on-line survey of students who have taken the Board of Certiification (BOC) Exam within the past year, looking at psychological factors and success on the BOC exam.
Congrats Darcy!
