Logan Adjunct Professor and Health Professions Education Resident to Graduate with Ed.D.

While working on her master’s degree in athletic leadership and positive coaching at the University of Missouri, Brianna Kraft, MEd, LAT, ATC worked as a graduate assistant athletic trainer for the university’s track and field and cross country programs. There she met Brittany Ramirez, DC, MS, LAT, ATC, CCSP®, who introduced her to Logan University and the adjunct professor position teaching courses in the Master of Science in Sports Science & Rehabilitation (MS-SSR) program. She currently teaches the sports emergency care course and lab, in addition to teaching sports psychology for the Master of Science in Strength & Conditioning (MS-SC) program.

“After joining Logan as an adjunct professor in 2021, I moved into the residency position that I am working on now, allowing me to not only teach courses, but also be involved in creating and enhancing curriculums and helping with the accreditation process,” said Brianna.

She also recently received her certification in emergency and primary care training, which led to her updating the courses she is currently teaching.

As part of the Health Professions Education residency program, Brianna will also be graduating this August with her Doctor of Education in Health Professions Education (Ed.D.).

“My goal is to eventually become a program director in the sports science field, and this doctorate degree will help pave the way to achieve this goal,” she said. “This is a widely recognized degree that gives me more education experience and hands-on training. It also applies everything I have learned through my experience in athletic training and from my residency program. It’s great to use my clinical experience while still learning about the education process and conducting research. It all integrates nicely.”
