Clinical Experience

During their undergraduate experience, students in the athletic training major can expect to complete clinical experience under the direct supervision of Board of Certification-certified and Massachusetts licensed athletic trainers. This clinical experience is sequenced to facilitate learning of the theoretical and clinical competencies and problem-solving skills needed by the athletic trainer. The supervised clinical experiences take place in Springfield College athletic training rooms, as well as in off-campus, approved affiliate settings, including high schools and colleges.

These hands-on opportunities lay the foundation for success as an athletic trainer upon graduation.
