SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Parkway South High School
By: Danielle Jabczynski (MAT Class of 2019)
I also had the chance to shadow Dr. Brian Mahaffey, primary care sports medicine physician for Mercy Sports Medicine and the St. Louis Cardinals. This gave me the chance to shadow his athletic trainer to see how athletic trainers practice in the clinical setting. I was able to look at different radiographs of all types of orthopedic conditions, observe different types of injections, and learn how different types of conditions are managed by a sports medicine physician.
I look forward to finishing up the year with the spring sports. I am eager to continue to take on greater responsibility before I finish up my time with the Parkway South Patriots.
This is one of a series of posts by the Saint Louis University Athletic Training students featuring their clinical site and their preceptors. The number, quality and diversity of clinical instruction are major assets for the SLU AT Program.
