SLU AT Student Finds Ample Clinical Learning Opportunities at Lindbergh HS

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight- Lindbergh High School
By: Erin Fabbri (SLU MAT Class of 2019)

My first clinical site for this fall semester is at Lindbergh High School. I am the first SLU AT student to be at this clinical site. I am really enjoying my experience at Lindbergh High School thus far. This fall season has been very busy with 10 sports and 25 teams in total.

My preceptor, Danielle Zee-Cheng, ATC and I get along extremely well. I have learned so much from her and she allows me to practice my AT skills on a daily basis. Each day I am there I learn something new whether it is a new injury, new evaluation, new way to tape or different stretching techniques. The athletic training room is always crowded which has allowed me to get lots of practice taping on a daily basis. Lindbergh does not have a lot of modalities so that enables me to practice my hands on skills and learn different ways to perform treatment.

I am looking forward to the rest of my semester at Lindbergh. The majority of the fall sports are ending their seasons and then winter sports will begin. I have gained great relationships with coaches and administration at Lindbergh. Lindbergh High School has been a great clinical site. 

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.
