Overview

Program Information

Clinical Education

The Athletic Training Education Program at The University of New Mexico includes both didactic (classroom) and clinical components. The clinical education allows the athletic training student (ATS) to apply theories and concepts learned in the classroom. The clinical education includes clinical hours with a variety of athletic teams at the high school, intercollegiate, clinical and professional levels. These experiences are invaluable in preparing the ATS for future employment opportunities.

Assignments to various clinical settings are designed to expose ATS to the various aspects of athletic training. While completing their clinical education, the ATS must be directly supervised by a Preceptor. Alternative clinical education settings may be utilized and may include sports medicine clinics, physical therapy clinics, college or university health centers, hospital emergency rooms, physician’s offices, or other health care settings.

A minimum of four semesters of clinical course work are required in the University of New Mexico Athletic Training Education Program. Each ATS will have the opportunity to gain experience in four major areas: gender, varying levels of risk, protective equipment, and medical experiences.
