The Clinical Education Coordinator (CEC) is responsible for assigning students to rotations and overseeing their clinical experiences.
Students are required to gain clinical experiences in a variety of settings including:
*UNCP Athletic Training Room
*Purnell Swett High School
*Red Springs High School
*South Robeson High School
*St. Pauls High School
*Fayetteville Orthopaedics and Sports Medcine (PT Rotation)
*TBA (Gen Med Rotation)
Students are required to gain clinical experiences with a variety of populations (athletic, general, geriatric). Assignments will be made to ensure that students gain experience with a variety of sports to include both genders, contact and non-contact, high risk of injuries and low risk of injuries and use of protective equipment (to minimally include helmets and shoulder pads).
In order for a student to be assigned to a clinical site for any type of “hands-on” experience, the University must have a signed Affiliation Agreement with the facility prior to the student being placed at the facility.
