My clinical site for the fall is WashU. At WashU, I am gaining clinical experience with both the men’s and women’s soccer teams. I have had an amazing experience with these teams and really enjoy working with these teams and my preceptors, Sam and Chris. My preceptors have allowed me freedom to grow into my role and who I want to be as an athletic trainer. Working under two preceptors has taught me a lot. Each one has a different way of approaching things and using different methods. Being able to see those different perspectives has allowed me to figure out what works best for me and begin to apply them to my own practice. So far this semester I have been able to learn hands-on practices, like cupping and active release, while also being put in experiences with serious injuries and situations, like elbow dislocations and eating disorders, and seeing how they are handled. I am really happy with how much I have been able to learn so far and can not wait to see what else I learn this semester.

Being in such a high profile and high paced environment has helped me to gain confidence in my clinical decision making and clinical reasoning skills while also challenging me to be more innovative and more creative with the vast amount of resources I have available. It is forcing me to always be ready and focus on the things that are most important. I have truly loved my time here in Starkville and I am excited to watch my skills and confidence continue to grow.

This semester, I returned back at Alton High School learning more from Andy Renner. So far, we have been covering basketball and wrestling, helping athletes through their rehab, and I have been studying for the BOC exam. This has been a great experience having Andy as one of my mentors. He is a great teacher and a great athletic trainer that does not get many SLU students due to the distance between the school and campus. These past few weeks have been exciting watching the girls’ basketball team work their way to sectionals and being able to help with the MVC tournament at Enterprise center last week with fellow SLU students.
This experience has helped me become better at all my skills as a future AT and it has been great getting to experience this with Andy. It is awesome getting to learn about how he came into the profession, and it is also a great to be with someone that is apart of an organization that I will so become a part of (IATA vice president). He has helped me study for the BOC exam and helped me understand what I need to do for licensure and gave me suggestions on where to get my continuing education credits after I graduate.
This has been a wonderful school year getting to learn from Andy and being with the athletes at Alton High School
This is one of a series of posts authored by students enrolled in the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Program. The number of clinical sites, the quality and diversity of the clinical experience opportunities, and the contemporary expertise of our preceptors are strengths of the CAATE Accredited SLU AT Program.
My name is Alex Smith, and I am a PY2 in the athletic training curriculum. My clinical site is at Saint Louis University. I am fortunate enough to collaborate alongside the preceptors in the athletic training facility at a division I collegiate level. My preceptor for this clinical experience is Elena Mellilo, ATC.
