Certified Athletic Trainer Program

Athletes in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS) system are now receiving expert treatment and injury-prevention guidance through the certified athletic trainer (ATC) program provided by Wake Forest Baptist Health, a leader in sports medicine.

ATCs are assigned to 1 of the 12 WS/FCS high schools: Atkins High School; Carver High School; East Forsyth High School; Glenn High School; Mount Tabor High School; North Forsyth High School; Parkland High School; Reagan High School; R.J. Reynolds High School; Walkertown High School; Winston-Salem Preparatory Academy; and West Forsyth High School.

 In addition to the 12 ATCs, Wake Forest Baptist also provides management, support services, and additional personnel to the program, including an AT coordinator, a medical director and a team of physicians.

Wake Forest Baptist is also developing a concussion program to meet the needs of the high schools and comply with laws governing the treatment of concussions. This includes the Gfeller-Waller Concussion Awareness Act, which requires all interscholastic athletic activities conducted by local boards of education to meet requirements regarding concussion education and emergency action, as well as protocols for removal from play and return to practice for student athletes following a concussion.
