SLU Athletic Training Student Thrives in Collegiate Clinical Setting

By: Jacob Kidwell (MAT Class of 2025)

My clinical site for the Spring semester is Fontbonne University. At Fontbonne, I have been working alongside Sammy Hochmuth and Cara Bowton in my second round of clinicals. One of my favorite things about being at Fontbonne is the learning environment. I am hands on with as many athletes and do not spend much time at actual practices. I am using what I have learned in the classroom more and more and also with more confidence each time. This experience is allowing me to work more with rehab which is aiding my professionalism by making sure I am respectful and helping athletes to the best of my ability. I am thankful that Sammy and Cara have allowed me to spend my semester at Fontbonne University with her.

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.
