One University of Kansas School of Medicine student is experiencing the Kansas City Chiefs training camp right from the sidelines this year.
Patrick Baki is a fourth-year medical student at the University of Kansas Medical School.
He was selected for a one-month clinical rotation through the NFL Diversity in Sports Medicine Pipeline Initiative.
It’s an opportunity for medical students interested in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery through the NFL Physicians Society (NFLPS) and the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society (PFATS).
He’ll get to spend this month between training camp with the team’s physicians and in community settings in their clinics.
“I’m right there with the docs who are working with these guys, checking them out on a day-to-day basis on what injuries they’re having, things that might be lingering or even just bumps and bruises they’re dealing with during camp,” Baki said.
