SLU AT Student Gaining Confidence Through Clinical Opportunity

By: Brandon Pavon (MAT Class of 2024)

So far this semester I have had the privilege of gaining experience with the Women’s basketball team at Saint Louis University under the preceptorship of Alaine Rhodes. This experience has been fantastic so far as I have had plenty of learning opportunities thus far as well as having the opportunity to sharpen my skills in clinical evaluation, use of modalities, and rehabilitation treatment. These experiences help me gain confidence in my ability as well as grow off of past experiences to help me become a more well rounded professional in order to benefit my future patients. I would like to thank my clinical coordinator Tim Howell as well as my preceptor Alaine Rhodes for their support and encouragement throughout this semester.

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.
