In addition to the clinical experiences with Coe College athletic teams, students participate in clinical experiences within various settings including high school athletics, sports medicine clinic, and physician's offices. These clinical affiliations are highly desirable locations for the program since they provide additional opportunities for the student to interact with physicians, nurses, physical therapists and certified athletic trainers.
