ATTR 5210. Clinical Experiences in Athletic Training I. 2 Hours.
Students demonstrate skill proficiency in a practice setting under the supervision and guidance of a clinical preceptor. Clinical skills practiced and evaluated in the course include injury prevention and protective strategies, care and management of acute injuries and emergency situations, and assessment of lower extremity pathologies. This course prepares students for the level-one designation to enable them to practice skills in real-patient contexts. The clinical placement of students must be coordinated and approved by the Athletic Training Clinical Education Coordinator prior to beginning the required 250 hours of the clinical experience. Students cannot progress to the subsequent level in the Master of Science in Athletic Training Program until all course program retention requirements are met.
Prerequisite: Admission to the Athletic Training Program, ATTR 5300, ATTR 5310, ATTR 5320, ATTR 5311, and ATTR 5111.
