Undergraduate Athletic Training Students

Athletic Training Students are involved in educational and clinical rotations throughout their two year undergraduate program at Michigan State University. Clinical rotations under the direction of Athletic Training Clinical Preceptors rotate within campus athletic training rooms of Duffy Daugherty, Jenison Field House, Munn Ice Arena, Jack Breslin Student Events Center, and IM West. Off-campus preceptors and clinical sites involve local high schools, sport medicine clinics, physical therapy clinics, and local or regional hospitals.

Athletic training students are involved in daily educational and clinical health care learning opportunities at Michigan State University. We would like to thank each of our graduating seniors for their dedication, professionalism, efforts, and experiences.
