School’s back in session and the University of South Florida is welcoming what’s being called “its most academically talented class of freshmen ever.” This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 talks to USF officials about the figures behind that claim, and what they’re doing to make sure this group graduates in four years! We’ll also talk to one of these gifted freshmen and find out what they expect from the years ahead.

Dr. Micki Cuppett, Director of the USF Athletic Training Education Program, talks about what the medical professionals faced during their training, which could change in just a moment because of iStan’s technology. She also speaks about what this kind of high-tech training means for USF, USF Health and the Sports Medicine Department.
Dr. Chuck Nofsinger, Assistant Professor in USF’s Department of USF Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, as well as a physician for the USF Bulls football team, says the training brings together the team of medical professionals: athletic trainers, team doctors and emergency responders; all to make sure they’re ready for game time as well.
Dr. Paul Dosal, USF Vice Provost For Student Success, talks to University Beat’s Mark Schreiner about the challenge in balancing the number of Florida students with out-of-state and international students, about how the multiple campuses in the USF system help with that balance and increasing enrollment, and what the university is doing to prepare students for their eventual careers.
