Clinical Supervision Policy

During the student’s clinical rotations, students are not permitted to practice any technique on a patient that has not been approved by the preceptor and will only be allowed after students have shown competency in the skill. Direct supervision is required for all clinical experiences. Direct supervision means that the Preceptor must be in sight and sound of the Athletic Training Student who is interacting with an athlete, and the Preceptor must be able to intervene when necessary for the well-being of the athlete. The minimum expected clinical hours for a 1 credit hour clinical experience is equal to a minimum of 10 hours per week a semester with a maximum of 15 hours per week for 15 weeks. The minimum expected clinical hours for a 2 credit hour clinical experience is equal to a minimum of 15 hours per week a semester with a maximum of 20 hours per week for 15 weeks.
