Integrated MAT Program

Beyond The Classroom

Once students start the Athletic Training program (typically their senior year), they will have four athletic training clinical rotations. One each semester for the four semesters in the program. For each clinical, they will be assigned to either an on-campus sports team, a local high school, or a local institution providing athletic training services. These clinics will allow students to receive hands-on clinical experience as they work with the athletes and the team’s athletic trainer. They average around 20-25 hours per week for the duration of the semester.

Engaging in internships, mentored research, associations, and clubs related to your program is an important step in linking your education with the real world. These experiences enhance your education and prepare you for both further schooling and your future career.
