In the Athletic Training program at Marist, we believe that a strong clinical field experience is essential to career preparedness. That is why you’ll complete nine clinical rotations including four consecutive five-week fully immersive rotations that will maximize student exposure to clinical practice under the supervision of experienced, certified and licensed health care providers. With a variety of high schools, colleges, and sport and physical therapy centers, as well as our own Sports Medicine Facility with full-time certified athletic trainers, we’ll work with you to ensure that the experience you receive is best suited to your future goals in athletic training.

Immersive Athletic Training Clinical Education and Experiences

Athletic training students put classroom theory into practice by completing clinical experiences in the surrounding area. Athletic training students are required to complete seven clinical rotations, including four consecutive five-week rotations at local high schools, colleges, and clinics. These experiential learning opportunities are completed under the supervision of assigned clinical preceptors who are certified athletic trainers or other licensed health care professionals.
