SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Mehlville High School
By: Brady Moore (MAT Class of 2016)
For the last two months my preceptor has been Dan Rackovan, ATC at Mehlville High School in my first clinical experience of the professional phase of SLU’s MAT program. I have greatly enjoyed my time at Mehlville High School and I have learned a lot about the daily tasks and duties I will be responsible for in the future. Dan has helped with my ability to gather history, assess injuries, and determine diagnoses of injuries. He has also helped me practice taking SOAP notes and become more comfortable with communicating with athletes to give them the best care possible. I have been exposed to many athletes and sports at Mehlville High School, which have helped me refine the skills I have learned during class this semester. I was surprised how well the curriculum integrated into the situations that I have been involved in at Mehlville. It seems that every week at least one topic that was discussed in class comes up when assessing an injured athlete.
