Jeff G. Konin was a valuable and productive member of the undergraduate Athletic Training Education Program at James Madison University. Then and now he possesses a tremendous insight in the area of clinical education. His attention to detail in the development and implementation of policy and procedure, as well as his ability to manage conflict, demonstrates his keen awareness of appropriate learning environments for students involved in allied health care clinical education.
Although our case settled very shortly after we retained him as an expert, Dr. Jeff Konin was very knowledgeable, responsive, and provided us enormous insight into the pros and cons of our case and standards within the industry.
There is no one more pro active, visionary, and thorough. Jeff’s efforts made the JMU sports medicine program 1000% more efficient and professional. What I admired most about Jeff Konin is he is a big thinker, innovative, and able to integrate many thoughts/areas at the same time.
I have known and collaborated with Dr. Jeff Konin through mutual professional organizations such as the American College of Sports Medicine for many years. Our endeavors together have included: collaboration on the Medical Education Committee for the ACSM and planning and running national advanced level courses for team physicians. His insight, integrity, work ethic, advice and outcomes are consistently well informed, evidence based and of superior quality.

I have known Jeff Konin for over five years and have had opportunities to observe his professional and personal character. Jeff is dedicated to achieving established goals and exhibits characteristics of both initiative and “finitiative” which are necessary for any organization or project to succeed. Jeff is extremely well organized and executes tasks to completion and on-time. I have been extremely impressed by his ability to keep programs on task and to insure those involved in projects also fulfill their responsibilities. I believe perhaps the most important characteristic for Jeff is his positive attitude towards achieving goals and allowing everyone to enjoy the process.
At our yearly seminar “Practical Applications in Sports Medicine” held in Southern California, getting outstanding speakers can sometime be difficult. Dr. Jeff Konin has been a valuable addition to our teaching efforts many times throughout our 20 years of sponsoring this symposium. He is an outstanding lecturer who makes his point without belaboring it, routinely rates as one of the best speakers both with content and presentation.
