UE’s Master of Science in Athletic Training Program Announces New Clinical Partner
Posted: Wednesday, August 21, 2019
The University of Evansville’s Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program has added the University of Florida as a new site for immersive clinical education beginning in the fall of 2020.
UE students can already gain clinical experience by working with Northwestern University, Vanderbilt University, Western Kentucky University, F.C. Dallas major league soccer team, as well as local high schools, universities, professional teams, and medical facilities.
Immersive clinical experiences are vital for MSAT students, said Troy Coppus, UE’s MSAT program director.
“Our students get to do everything the athletic trainer does,” said Coppus. “Working with these high-level athletes, paired with one-on-one attention in the UE classroom, prepares our graduates to step right onto the field after graduation.”
All MSAT students participate in an immersive clinical rotation. Classes taken during a student’s immersive semester are online, so there are no geographic restrictions on the immersive rotations.
