International Student Completes Internship with MLB
Tuesday, April 9th, 2013
West Virginia Wesleyan College student Nobuhiro Fukuoka, a junior athletic training major from Tokyo, Japan, recently completed a two- week internship in Arizona. However, he was not taking in the scenery; instead, he was working with two of Major League Baseball’s most popular teams, the San Diego Padres and the Seattle Mariners.
“I have learned many things, including actual skills and knowledge that I should know as an athletic trainer,” stated Fukuoka. “I have also learned the importance of communication between athletic trainers, team doctors, coaches, players, and other staff members.”
