Clinical Education

A major component of the Athletic Training Program at the Arizona School of Health Sciences is the opportunity for student involvement in a wide range of supervised clinical experiences. The learning experiences provided are designed to enhance the student's professional growth as an athletic training clinician, educator, researcher, and administrator. In consultation with the clinical education coordinator, the athletic training student will develop their proposed clinical education plan from activities in these categories:

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships place the student in paid athletic training positions in local high schools, clinics, and colleges and apply only to those students who qualify for graduate assistantship positions. Athletic Training graduate assistantship students must be Certified by the NATABOC and licensed as an athletic trainer in the State of Arizona.
