The athletic training program utilizes four separate facilities to teach and conduct research. The primary teaching laboratory is located in Room B1 of the Memorial Gym. It houses basic diagnostic and rehabilitative equipment. It is here that students practice and refine the skills of athletic training through clinical education labs and the Free Injury Clinic. We also utilize Vandal Athletics Training Room, housed in the Vandal Athletic Center within the ASUI Kibbie Dome, home to Vandals Athletics as a teaching laboratory for clinical education and clinical experience.
The Human Performance Laboratory, our primary research laboratory, is located in Room 113 of the Physical Education Building. With over 3000 square feet of dedicated research space, faculty and students use an 8-camera Vicon Motion Analysis System for biomechanical laboratory and clinical research. The lab is also equipped with a dual platform system as well as a NeuroCom SMART Balance Master and the Biopac research systems for studying neurophysiological aspects of health.
Faculty and students also have access to the Gritman Medical Center for education and research. In addition to providing computerized tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, general radiology and both inpatient and outpatient services, Gritman Medical Center also allows the athletic training students to observe specific surgeries. This enhances the learning process for the athletic training students by providing an opportunity for them to follow an injury from the initial evaluation on the field, through surgery, and then through the rehabilitation process in the athletic training facility.
