UW Oshkosh Athletic Training Clinical Experiences

A student's clinical experiences comprise an important part of their tenure in the athletic training program.

Once students are admitted to the program, the clinical experience sequence requires 3 years/6 semesters of study. Students may have the opportunity to complete one experience in a summer if they wish to graduate in December. As their clinical experiences progress, students are given increasingly more responsibility as they acquire and perfect clinical skills. Students engaged in the clinical education component of the athletic training program are required to abide by the program's clinical expectations.


  • Prior to beginning their clinical experience, students must complete the following:
  • Minimum GPA of 2.75
  • CPR/AED Certification
  • Immunizations {HBV Vaccine or Declination, TB Test (within 1 year), MMR Immunity, Varicella Immunity, DPT, Tetanus (current within 10 years)}
  • Blood Borne Pathogen Training
  • Criminal Background Check

Students in the program will incur the following costs: clinical clothing, a fanny pack or shoulder pack for taping supplies, a TB test each year, background checks (possibly once a year), and gas costs to/from clinical sites. For more information on program requirements take a look at the program manual here.
