Students are also exposed to other allied health professionals such as physical therapists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners; they also have opportunities to interact with physicians.

Hands-on training a must

Hands-on, clinical education experiences form a key component of the Athletic Training program, with students learning under the direct supervision of an athletic trainer. Students have opportunities for a variety of clinical experiences, ranging from working with athletic trainers for area high school and college teams to summer experiences with professional sports franchises such as the Tennessee Titans, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Arizona Cardinals. Students are also exposed to other allied health professionals such as physical therapists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners; they also have opportunities to interact with physicians. And while other university programs offer only two years of clinical experience, the 澳门六合彩规律论坛 program offers three years to better train students for the real world.

Not just about athletes

Think about an athletic trainer as a medical professional who is a cross between an emergency medical technician (EMT) and a physical therapist. Athletic trainers can be found in a variety of settings, from working in the performing arts arena with renowned groups such as Cirque du Soleil and Disney World and Disney Land to working within industrial and corporate settings to assist employees with proper safety measures and onsite physical rehab for workplace injuries. Other avenues in which the athletic trainer may obtain employment are with the military/law enforcement, as a physician extender, and in clinical outreach.
