Manchester University Athletic Training

 

Athletic Training Curriculum

 

The required curriculum for the major in athletic training consists of both classroom and clinical education components. Students first acquire the requisite knowledge and practice the appropriate skills in a carefully controlled classroom setting. Once students successfully complete a classroom course, they then apply these skills in the "real world" environment of the athletic training treatment facility, practice sites, and competition venues, but continue to be under the direct supervision of a approved clinical instructor. Students are assigned to clinical experiences which will include exposure to general medical conditions, upper extremity conditions, lower extremity conditions, and to equipment intensive physical activities. Each clinical experience level (I - VI) is associated with a particular set of classroom courses. Successful completion of the associated classroom courses is required before enrolling in a specific clinical experience course.
