Promoting Quality Patient-Care
Athletic Trainers are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians and other health professionals to optimize patient care, client activity and participation in athletics, work and life. The practice of athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of chronic and acute medical conditions.
All students are required to complete a minimum of 900 clinical education hours under the direct supervision of a certified athletic trainer. 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.
- 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.
