Course: AT 540. Clinical Experiences in Athletic Training I (1)
Prerequisite: Acceptance into the professional Master of Science in Athletic Training program. The Clinical Experiences series is designed to allow Athletic Training students opportunities for practice and the development of clinical skills learned in the classroom and to increase autonomy of patient care in clinical practice. As this first course in a six-part series, Clinical Experiences in Athletic Training I is an introduction to athletic training clinical experiences and employment settings. Student experiences may include observations in physician offices (with MD’s and/or athletic trainers employed in the physician practice setting), in rehabilitation clinics, in operating rooms during orthopedic surgical procedures, in the performing arts or in corporate settings. Students will also participate in pre-season practices at local clinical sites as a part of this course.
