Clinical experiences

Clinical rotations housed within the MSAT curriculum will place students in a variety of work settings under the supervision of either a certified athletic trainer (ATC) or licensed physician. The goal of clinical rotations is to expose students to a variety of practice settings in order help shape their own career trajectory, develop their clinical skills, expand their professional network and experience the day-to-day work environment of certified athletic trainers. Settings may include middle/high school athletics, intercollegiate athletics, tactical athletes, general practice and orthopedic clinics, human performance training facilities, physical therapy clinics, emergency departments, medical fitness facilities and others.

The MSAT has:

  • 6 clinical rotations
  • 14 credits for clinical rotations
  • 560 clinical hours are required
