Clinical Education Program
The foundation of Limestone College's Athletic Training Program is the Clinical Education Program, which is primarily addressed through the Athletic Training Practicum courses. The Clinical Education Program allows academic coursework and clinical experiences to merge in order to provide the ATS with a well-rounded and practical educational experience. ATSs participate in a curriculum that is designed and sequenced to begin with fundamental competencies and proficiencies and to progress through comprehensive clinical skills.
During the Athletic Training Practicum courses, the ATS has the opportunity to work on assigned clinical skills, participate in assigned clinical experiences, interact with medical and health personnel, and ultimately, grow as a professional. ATSs are also evaluated numerous times during this course, both in the academic and clinical settings. The syllabus for this course will be distributed on the first day of class and will explain the components and expectations of Athletic Training Practicum.
Clinical experiences are assigned to the ATS to coincide with academic coursework and to provide clinical experiences with upper extremity sports, lower extremity sports, and equipment intensive sports, an internship and a general medical rotation. ATSs will also participate in a general medical rotation and an internship at a local high school or college/university. .
It is the responsibility of each ATS to arrange transportation to and from all clinical experiences.
