SLU AT Student Builds Knowledge and Clinical Skills at Christian Brothers College HS
SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Christian Brothers College High School
By: Sydney Nash (MAT Class of 2022)
This semester I have been placed at Christian Brothers College (CBC) High School for my clinical site. During this clinical experience at CBC I am caring for soccer, football, and cross country. My preceptor Kristen Jeans, ATC, LMT works through Mercy Sports Medicine for CBC and has made this first clinical experience exciting and knowledgeable.
During this time of craziness with COVID-19 Kristen has helped guide me through all the unknowns that have come from the ever-changing ways of sports in the time of a pandemic. During this clinical experience I have learned a lot of new and exciting ways in taping patients and new ways to implement rehabilitation without having access to modalities or the athletic training room.
Kristen has been a great in teaching me things to look for and things to ask when assessing a patient to be able to help them best. CBC has been an amazing experience so far with the welcoming staff and players.
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.
