Welcome to the Athletic Training Experiential Education website! Experiential education is an integral part of the athletic training program at Drake University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Students have the opportunity to apply and integrate classroom instruction with hands-on experience in traditional and emerging athletic training environments. This is an important and valuable part of professional preparation and every effort is made to ensure preparedness and success along the way for both student and preceptor.
In the Athletic Training Program, students are placed in experiential learning settings each semester. These experiences grow in length and independence throughout the program and are designed to expose students to the variety of athletic training settings that a student might choose to work after graduation. We encourage you to come to campus for a visit or schedule a virtual meeting with a faculty member so you can learn more about how experiential education is different at Drake.
