Clinical Education

Student-centered practical learning opportunities are a vital component of the FIU Athletic Training education experience. 

Students gain clinical education experiences at the collegiate level, at local high schools, at sports medicine clinics, and at community/special events while enrolled in the required Clinical Education I-V courses, which count towards the total hours necessary for graduation eligibility.

Clinical instruction is further enhanced through our state-of-the-art Simulation Teaching And Research Center (aka S.T.A.R. Center), which is home to educational and research labs for real-world training and practice.

Diversity of Clinical Settings

Our graduates treat diverse populations in a variety of settings ranging from professional, collegiate and high school sporting grounds; rehabilitation clinics and sports institutes; orthopedic physician offices; school systems; corporate and industrial workplaces; and even NASA.

About Clinical Rotations

Refer to the MSAT Program Handbook and the college's Clinical & Fieldwork resources to prepare you for the FIU AT clinical education experience.

All students of the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences participating in clinical work must submit to background checks, fingerprint searches, drug screenings and immunization tracking through FIU Express.
