Clinical Education

The UNCG AT Program’s philosophy of clinical education encompasses a team approach of shared responsibility among AT Program Faculty, Preceptors, and Athletic Training Students.

The clinical education plan is rooted in theories of peer assisted learning, experiential learning, and adult learning and is designed to value the collective experiences of all members of the education team.


The UNCG AT Program clinical education plan follows the guidelines set forth in the CAATE “Standards and Guidelines for an Accredited Educational Program for the Athletic Trainer”.


The AT Program Faculty and Preceptors collectively determine the clinical rotation assignments for all students. Rotations for first year students are assigned at the conclusion of the summer semester. Subsequent rotation assignments are determined during the semester prior to the rotation.

All AT students will gain a combination of clinical experiences in each of the following categories (possible rotations are listed below):
