A Conceptual Framework for Clinical Education in Athletic Training
Radtke, Sarah
Athletic Training Education Journal, v3 n2 p36-42 Apr-Jun 2008
Objective: To develop a model for clinical education in athletic training education based on integration of various allied health professional clinical education models. Background: Clinical education is a critical component of allied health education programs. It allows for the transfer of knowledge and skills from classroom to practical application. Clinical education needs to be structured. In addition the Clinical Instructor (CI) also needs to facilitate athletic training students' development into effective, evidence-based practitioners. Description: A brief discussion on the need for transfer of knowledge in athletic training education is discussed. A review of the various clinical education models from allied health professional education is presented. Finally, a model for athletic training clinical education is presented with implications for practice. Clinical Advantages: As athletic training education continues to develop, a need to formalize clinical education and develop a clinical education model for athletic training is warranted. Focusing on the structure and function of clinical education will continue to move athletic training education forward and will align athletic training education with other allied health professional education programs.
