Due to the nature of the various employment settings that employ the affiliated preceptors, clinical education times are often inflexible. The setting and opportunities are often dictated by preceptor availability, practice/game times, and/or the “open hours” of the clinical site, thus, making employment and extra-curricular activities extremely difficult to impossible. Though these activities are not restricted, students must realize their top priority is the educational preparation necessary for the field of Athletic Training. Therefore, we will maintain that clinical time scheduling in laboratory/clinical experiences to be the primary consideration when you are developing your schedule each semester.
Additionally, due to the nature of the athletic training program curriculum and the balance between didactic and clinical educational experiences, students will not be able to participate in intercollegiate athletics.
