Clinical Education Philosophy
The UNCG AT Program's philosophy of clinical education encompasses a team approach of shared responsibility among AT Program Faculty, Preceptors, and Athletic Training Students. The clinical education plan is rooted in theories of peer assisted learning, experiential learning, and adult learning and is designed to value the collective experiences of all members of the education team.
Clinical Education Guidelines
The UNCG AT Program clinical education plan follows the guidelines set forth in the CAATE "Standards and Guidelines for an Accredited Educational Program for the Athletic Trainer" (http://www.caate.net ).
