Clinical Question: Do cultural-competence-based educational interventions improve the cultural competence of athletic training students, based on the constructs of the Campinha-Bacote model? Clinical Bottom Line: Athletic training programs can improve athletic training students’ cultural awareness, knowledge, skill, encounters, and desire by incorporating cultural-competence-based independent readings, lecture presentations, in-class discussions, and self-awareness activities.

Sears and Lopez are with the Department of Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, USA. Moffit is with the Human Performance and Sport Science Department, Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID, USA.
