Clinical Field Experience

  • Travel expenses - All students will complete at least one clinical field experience at Marist College. The other clinical rotations will be completed at sites that are located off campus and will require travel to and from that location 5-6 days per week. The average distance for the off campus clinical affiliated sites is 11 miles, with Bard College and the Millbrook School being the furthest (24 miles). Students are responsible for all clinical field experience travel expenses, including transportation, food, parking and gas. The estimated annual cost for travel to and from the clinical sites is $2500.
  • Pre-participation physical exam and TB test – Students are required to have an updated pre-participation physical exam and TB test each year. The student is responsible for all costs associated with the exam and TB test. An annual physical is typically covered by health insurers, many of which offer it for free. Students who are covered by health insurance, but are not entitled to a free visit under their plan, typically face a copay of $10 -$50 or more. For students without health insurance, an annual physical typically costs $50-$200 or more.
  • Dress code - Students are responsible for clothing required to meet the ATP dress code. Pre-professional students are provided a name tag and one athletic training t-shirt that must be worn during observation hours. Students may purchase additional athletic training t-shirts (currently $13.00 each). Professional phase students must wear their name tag and may only wear solid red or white Marist College Athletic Training collared polo shirts, black or khaki slacks, shorts or wind pants and sneakers or other closed toed shoe during the clinical field experience. The ATP will provide one athletic training polo shirt and name tag. Additional polo shirts may be purchased (currently $33.00 each). Students may also purchase sweatshirts, jackets, hats and other Marist Athletic Training apparel during the school year. If a student loses the provided name tag, the student is responsible for replacing it (currently $13.00).

Professional liability insurance and costs associated with Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC) training are provided by Marist College and the ATP.

Professional Development

Professional membership - Students are highly encouraged to join the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. By doing so, students also become members of the Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association and the New York State Athletic Trainers’ Association. The student is responsible for all membership fees. The current student membership fee is $85 which includes the national, district and state associations.

Professional meetings - Students are highly encouraged to attend national, regional and state professional meetings. The ATP does it best to assist with costs (the ATP usually pays for lodging at the EATA annual conference), however costs associated with travel and registration fees are the student’s responsibility.

2022 Conference Registration Fees:

EATA - $115

NATA - $155

Service opportunities – Students are highly encouraged to participate in service volunteer activities. Travel expenses are usually the responsibility of the student.
