SLU AT Student Appreciates Unique Role of Alum in Preceptor at Fort Zumwalt South HS

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

I am spending the last semester of my clinical experience under the leadership of my preceptor, Athletico AT and SLU MAT Class of 2015 graduate Josh Harris MAT, ATC. 

Having a former SLU student as a preceptor has been amazing for me because Josh understands the program and the expectations placed on us and holds myself, my evaluations, and my skills to a high standard. 

Josh has given me autonomy in the AT Room to initially manage all cases that walk through the door from initial evaluation, treatment, rehab, to return to play. Having a preceptor not only confident in their abilities, but mine has made my final semester at SLU everything I hoped it would be. 

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.
