Clinical Education and Experience

Clinical education/experience is an important aspect to Athletic Training education. The Marist ATP offers progressive experiences to ensure that students are able to practice and apply skills and proficiencies taught in the classroom and labs. 

Students of the Athletic Training program at Marist College learn not only in small classroom settings but also through one-on-one mastery of athletic training skills with clinical preceptors. 

All Clinical Preceptors are certified athletic trainers or other licensed health care professionals and are aware of the clinical experience level of each athletic training student, and the overall structure, mission and philosophy of our education plan. 

They are able to assist with the teaching and evaluation of clinical skills and proficiencies required for each of the students assigned to them, as well as the professional development and maturation of each student.

Extensive Clinical Experience Develops Students for Careers in Athletic Training

With a variety of high schools, colleges, and sport and physical therapy centers, as well as our own Sports Medicine Facility working with full-time certified athletic trainers, we’ll work with you to ensure that the experience you receive is best suited to your future goals in athletic training.
