Each semester of the program includes clinical education experiences linked directly to the professional coursework through the Clinical Skills courses. Students are assigned to a different preceptor each semester of program enrollment. In accordance with accreditation guidelines and program philosophy, students complete exposures to individual and team sports, sports requiring protective equipment, patients of different sexes, non-sport patient populations and a variety of conditions other than orthopaedics. Each student will complete a clinical rotation requiring either pre-season or post-season experience and travel. Over the six semesters of program enrollment students will spend a minimum of two semesters in the on-campus athletic training facilities and a minimum of one semester of clinical experience off-campus at a local high school. The first two semesters are spent in clinical assignments in the on-campus facilities. Effective with the 2016 cohort, the final semester of program enrollment will include 4 week long rotations through a physical therapy clinic and family practice/general medicine/internal medicine physician office. Clinical education assignments are designed to ensure the student exposure to diverse educational experiences through work with a variety of preceptors, patients and allied medical and medical professionals in many different settings. In addition to the 16 clinical sites within the UA Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, a range of local high schools, physical therapy clinics, physician offices and the UA Student Recreation Center serve as affiliated clinical settings within the AT Program.
