SLU AT Students Experience a Welcoming and Supportive Learning Environment at Pattonville HS

SLU AT Clinical Site Spotlight - Pattonville High School
By: Emily Haley (MAT Class of 2023) Marissa Uecker (MAT Class of 2024)

Pattonville High School has been and continues to be an incredible hands-on learning experience. It is a very active and engaging clinical site and the student athletes love having SLU AT students around. Our preceptor, SLU alum Alex Hubbs MAT, ATC, provides guidance to expand basic skills of athletic training and develop new ones as well as allows us the autonomy to do anything we feel comfortable with from rehab and treatment programs to on-field evals. Alex’s teaching style always pushes us out of our comfort zones, and this allows for a ton of growth in our confidence and skills. 

Pattonville is a busy and engaging site that offers so many opportunities to see many different and unique injuries. It is always a welcoming and fun environment which makes it a great place to learn and prepare to become a certified athletic trainer. 

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.
