This summer I am doing my summer field experience at a Mercy Sports Medicine Clinic. I have two different preceptors, Katie Mazzaferro ATC, DPT and Jillian Burrows ATC. It’s very nice working with different preceptors because it gives me different ideas and perspectives on rehab. In her role, Katie sees a wide variety of patients which in turn allows me to get a wider variety of experiences.
Students in the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Program have an immersive field experience in the summer between their two professional years in the program. This blog post details a student's reflection on their experience.
