In addition, as part of each of the field experience course, athletic training students are required to complete a variety of written comparison assignments and to utilize their knowledge, skills, abilities in the day-to-day care and management of injured individuals at various off-campus sites for at least 150 laboratory hours under the guidance of a supervising allied health professional.
