The clinical education aspect of the Master of Science in Athletic Training program is a coordinated effort between Seton Hall University and various clinical sites. Seton Hall University has clinical affiliation agreements with many clinical facilities in the New Jersey area. Students can expect hands-on clinical experience with athletes and physically active individuals at both on- and off-campus facilities, including:
- Professional Sports Teams
- Sports Medicine/rehabilitation clinics
- High Schools
- Colleges and Universities
- Sports Performance/Training Facilities
- General Medicine Clinics
Since most clinical sites are not accessible by public transportation, a student must have a valid driver's license and access to an automobile to meet clinical requirements.
Students who are pursuing a degree in Athletic Training need to be aware of certain elements that potentially can impact clinical placement, certification, licensure, and future employment. Federal and various state laws are in place that preclude persons with criminal backgrounds from being in contact with children and patients. Where these laws apply, you will be required to undergo a criminal background check which may include fingerprinting and a search of federal and state criminal data bases. Drug testing may also be required. A felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the BOC certification examination and/or attain state licensure. The student will incur the cost of this process which is conducted on an individual basis as required by the clinical site.
In order to ensure that the School graduates competent and ethical practitioners, the School of Health and Medical Sciences faculty, in conjunction with the Dean's Office, developed the Academic Performance Standards Policy and Student Performance Review Committee Procedures.
