Athletic Training Program

Clinical Progression

CLINICAL FIELD EXPERIENCE PROGRESSION

CCSU’s clinical field experience is designed to provide the student with four semesters of practical clinical field experience in Central Connecticut State University's Athletic Training facility and concludes with a fifth semester off-campus affiliation.  One entire preseason experience during the athletic training student's senior year is required. CCSU preseason camp dates vary year to year, but typically the athletic training student will report in early August and participate in this experience through Labor Day. The preseason clinical experience cannot be partially fulfilled; therefore all outside employment must be terminated prior to the reporting date.
