EKU's 2nd MS in AT Cohort Induction
Students in EKU's second MS in AT cohort started the summer grind in May with classes on Monday through Friday from 8am to about 4pm. Not every day was the same but the long labs taking in-depth looks at Palpation Anatomy and basic skills in athletic training can exact their toll. When interviewed about the experience, Dr. Matthew Sabin stated "No matter the day or the time, the amount of homework, or the upcoming exam, there wasn't a grumpy face in the class." Alright....so that wasn't true but they did persevere with determination and they definitely applied themselves to the task. By the end of the summer they conquered Palpation Anatomy, Practical Aspects in AT, and General Medical Conditions. All of these courses were designed with one goal in mind, preparation for the first full immersion experience.
To start that pre-season experience, the MS in AT Program held the second Clinical Induction Ceremony. Students were honored to hear from alumnus Sandy Williams as she recounted the changes in athletic training at EKU throughout the years and charged students to maintain the qualities that have given athletic training a heritage at EKU. Students also took and signed EKU's Athletic Training Oath of Clinical Practice and mingled with faculty and staff from the College of Health Sciences.
Please join the faculty in congratulating and encouraging the MS in AT Class of 2019 on achieving this milestone. Welcome them to the opportunity to join all those that have gone before them, faculty, staff and students that have been apart of EKU's program since 1971. No pressure!
