SLU AT Summer Field Experience Spotlight - Saint Louis Medical Clinic
By: Maddie Bresnahan (SLU MAT Class of 2018)
I’ve grown very comfortable taking vitals and obtaining medical histories. I am also learning so much as I watch Dr. Wadsworth use evaluation and treatment techniques that we have not yet learn in class.
I get the opportunity to look at and discuss patient’s diagnostic imaging, assist Dr. Wadsworth in giving different types of joint injections, observe the doctor when performing acupuncture, and learn how a doctor’s office operates.
I am enjoying my summer clinical experience very much. And I am excited for what the rest of the summer brings.
Students in the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Program have an immersive internship in the summer between their two professional years in the program. This blog post details a student's reflection on their internship experience.
