Mount Union allows me to work hands-on with the athletes that come into the athletic training facility. The faculty really focuses on staying on top of your game, and they push you to get better.
Athletic Training Hands-On Learning
Students who choose to major in athletic training at the University of Mount Union have ample opportunities to get “real-world” experience outside of the classroom. Being involved in these experiential and clinical field opportunities, will strengthen students’ skills in prevention, diagnosis, immediate care and rehabilitation of athletic related injuries and illnesses.
Clinical experiences provide ATP students the opportunity to work with patients of all ages in a variety of settings. Our clinical affiliations include:
- Mount Union’s varsity athletic teams
- Local high schools
- Local hospitals and medical centers
- Medical offices of local physicians
- Local EMS services
