About the Clinical Program

All athletic training majors complete clinical internships totaling at least 1200 hours under the direct supervision of a certified athletic trainer. Although most of your experience will come from working with Hope student-athletes in our two athletic training rooms, you will also serve three rotations in each of the following settings: 

  • A local high school 
  • A local hospital-based sports medicine clinic 
  • Our team physician's family medicine office 
  • A local orthopedic physician's office observing an athletic trainer and the physicians.
Many students participate in summer internships in athletic training. Our students have gained valuable summer experience in: 
  • Professional football 
  • Sports medicine clinics 
  • University sports camps 
  • The Junior Olympic program 
  • State games 
  • Special Olympics
