Athletic training graduate committed to improving transgender healthcare and education
Erica Schulman is a May 2022 graduate of the Master of Science in Advanced Athletic Training program.
“I was drawn to athletic training because it combines my passion for health and sport,” says Schulman.
During their time in the program, Schulman explored their interests in transgender healthcare and its integration into academic curricula and educational opportunities for athletic training students and practicing athletic trainers. They also received significant hands-on experience, including clinical sport to UofSC groups, Claflin University and a local club soccer organization.
Long term, Schulman would like to work as an athletic trainer in a collegiate or professional setting. They are particularly interested in working with a soccer team, due to the small-team environment and their love for the sport.
