SLU AT Student Gets Varied Perspectives in Immersive Clinical Experience at Fort Zumwalt North HS

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Fort Zumwalt North High School
By: Cheyenne Meinershagen (MAT Class of 2020)

I spent my summer gaining experience at Fort Zumwalt North High School. I had the opportunity to be mentored by SLU alum Jay Maturan MAT, ATC, from Athletico, and multiple other athletic trainers gaining insight to their ways of thinking and had the opportunity to see how that translates into their practice.

We had multiple different team camps with athletes in the athletic training room before and after each of their practices. I have had the opportunity to learn multiple different rehab programs and instruct different athletes through them.

I am enjoying my time spent at Fort Zumwalt North and can’t wait to spend the rest of my PY2 year there!

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.
