“I learned a lot about myself and the type of clinician I want to become. From emergency care to ongoing rehabilitation, my preceptor allowed me to provide comprehensive care and take on my own patient load. This opportunity enhanced my confidence in providing quality care throughout the phases of injury, while working with a wide array of athletes at various states in their recovery.”

I also appreciated the program director’s and other instructors’ ability to listen to my feedback about the program.”
