Clinical Experience

Students admitted into the Athletic Training Program are required to complete a six-semester clinical experience at a Whitworth-approved clinical affiliate. The experience typically will begin during the fall term of the student's sophomore year. A complete description of the clinical experience is located in the AT student handbook, which is located on our home page. In brief, the sophomore and senior year are generally completed at our on campus clinical site working with Whitworth athletics. Junior year clinical experiences rotate through various off-campus clinical sites.

Athletic training students enrolled in each clinical experience are undergraduate students who have meet and maintain all standards for program admission (including immunizations, technical standards, etc.). Students must also hold current CPR, AED and First Aid certificates. Certain off-campus sites may require additional background checks or clearances which will be completed through the Athletic Training Program.
