SLU AT Student Embraces Diversity at Clinical Site

By: I-Chen (Hugo) Lee (MAT Class of 2024)

    This is my final clinical rotation before graduation, and I am delighted to be assigned to SIUE. SIUE boasts a wealth of athletic trainers who offer diverse perspectives. What I appreciate most is that all the preceptors treat us as colleagues. They encourage us to tackle tasks we feel confident in, and when there's a shortage, they offer advice in a remarkably polite manner. Fortunately, there are two AT graduates from SLU here, so they truly understand our needs. I want to extend special thanks to our main preceptor, Lupe. She consistently provides us with opportunities to conduct evaluations and treatments under her kind supervision, while also allowing flexibility in our schedules.

This is one of a series of posts authored by students enrolled in the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Program. The number of clinical sites, the quality and diversity of the clinical experience opportunities, and the contemporary expertise of our preceptors are strengths of the CAATE Accredited SLU AT Program.
