About the Scholarship

PBATS is currently accepting applications for the 2nd Annual Lewis A. Yocum Memorial Baseball Medicine Conference Scholarship program. The 2nd annual Baseball Medicine Conference will be held in Phoenix, Arizona from January 12th – 14th.

PBATS will be awarding nine athletic training students with a Dr. Lewis A. Yocum Baseball Medicine Conference Scholarship, which will be used to directly pay for the conference registration fee, a total cost of $450.

Students will be responsible for their own hotel and transportation costs. The registration fee will be paid directly to the Lewis A. Yocum Baseball Medicine Conference and not directly to the student.

Only those students willing and able to attend the Baseball Medicine Conference should apply. All students can visit the Baseball Medicine Conference website to register: http://baseballmedicineconference.com/

About the Baseball Medicine Conference

The course chairman, Dr. Neal ElAttrache, Director of the Kerlan Jobe Sports Medicine Fellowship and co-chairman, Dr. Orr Limpisvasti, have designed the program for athletic trainers and physical therapists who deal with baseball and softball injuries.

The conference is endorsed by the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers’ Society, Major League Baseball Team Physicians Association and National Athletic Trainers’ Association, and is supported by Major League Baseball. This endorsement is in keeping with their commitment to provide the community with the latest information regarding baseball injuries and their prevention.
