SLU AT Student Enjoys Clinical Experience at Parkway South HS

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Parkway South High School
By:  Maddie Bresnahan (SLU MAT Class of 2018)

This year I get the opportunity to be at Parkway South High School with preceptor Mike Tzianos ATC who is at South through Mercy Sports Medicine! I enjoy learning under Mike's guidance, he is an experienced athletic trainer with so much knowledge to share with me. I get to spend the afternoons with Mike and become accustomed  to working in a high school and treating high school athletes.
I’ve already learned so much this semester! I constantly get to practice my athletic training skills. I tape, evaluate, and rehab athletes daily and I get great feedback from my preceptor to improve my skills. He also is always teaching my new skills and helpful tips to improve myself.

I love my clinical site this semester! And I am excited to continue learning and practicing athletic training skills.

This is one of a series of posts by the Saint Louis University Athletic Training students featuring their clinical site and their preceptors. The number, quality and diversity of clinical instruction are major assets for the SLU AT Program.
