Program Expectations for AT Students

Athletic training students must adhere to several requirements and standards throughout the duration of their program in order to progress and to successfully graduate. Some of these requirements are detailed below. Additional requirements and standards (e.g., clinical site dress code, professional conduct/behavior, and maintaining patient confidentiality), are detailed in the Athletic Training Student Handbook (see related links).

Technical Standards

The ATEP Technical Standards establish the essential demands and requirements of all enrolled athletic training students. All ATEP students must meet these abilities and expectations, which establish the minimum essential qualities to achieve the knowledge, skills, and competencies of an entry-level Athletic Trainer. In the event that an athletic training student is unable to fulfill these technical standards with or without reasonable accommodation, he/she will not successfully advance through the ATEP and/or the Athletic Training major. Refer to the Athletic Training Student Handbook for the complete delineation of Technical Standards.

Evaluation of Student Performance

Per accreditation requirements, ATEP students must complete all of the Psychomotor Competencies, Clinical Proficiencies, and Clinical Hours logs required for their corresponding level in the program. Please refer to the Athletic Training Student Handbook for additional details regarding methods of evaluating student performance.
