An important element of the program is the clinical education component. Students' clinical learning experiences include sports practices, games, surgeries, general medical rotation, and an off-campus rotation at a high school or sports medicine clinic. These assignments give the students an opportunity to take the lessons from the classroom and apply their techniques in the field.
Students graduating from the ATP can expect to bring their skill set to almost any field. Athletic trainers provide services to secondary schools, colleges/universities and professional sports. They can also serve sports medicine clinics, emergency rooms and hospitals, physician offices, military or performing arts.
