Clinical Education/Experiences

Athletic training students learn not only in small classroom settings but also with one-on-one mastery of athletic training skills with certified athletic trainers. Students will be assigned to a Certified Athletic Trainer who will assist in teaching and assessing the required athletic training techniques. Each student will be assessed on all competencies and proficiencies established by the National Athletic Trainers' Association Education Council.

The athletic training student will gain "hands-on" experience with the physically active in traditional and non-traditional settings. These settings include intercollegiate athletics in area colleges, interscholastic athletics in area high schools, sports medicine clinics, fitness centers, and physician's offices. We are also pursuing additional settings with area professional sports teams.

Students are required to purchase clothing, a nametag, and a watch to meet the dress code requirements. Any expenses related to traveling to and from clinical sites are the responsibility of the student. More information can be found in the Student Policy and Procedure manual (PDF).
