Hi, I’m Alex Davis and I have been at Edwardsville High School with my preceptor, Katie Hamilton ATC this Fall. This has been an amazing experience to start my first clinical rotation at Edwardsville. Katie is an awesome preceptor and has helped me grow as an AT student. She has helped me with taping, therapeutic modalities, special tests, and evaluation. I love being here and helping Katie out with the athletes.
Every day I get more and more comfortable with my skills and knowledge that I use outside of class and using them in the field under Katie’s supervision. I love being around the student athletes everyday and I hate to go home when we are finished for the day. I love building these relationships with the athletes, coaches, and staff here at Edwardsville and I am excited for the rest of the semester.
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.
