All students will complete clinical rotations categorized by exposure to general medical experiences, varying levels of risk, a variety of different populations including genders, and protective equipment.
Clubs
  • Athletic Training Club: The mission of the club is to assist students in gaining knowledge in the prevention, acute care, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries to the physically active. This is accomplished through meetings, guest speakers, campus activities, philanthropies, and fundraising for support to educational conferences. 

    This club consists of about 15 students that are very active throughout the University of Idaho campus and conduct monthly meetings to discuss club business.
