Dawn M. Maffucci, M.A., ATC

Director of Clinical Education

Department of Athletic Training


I am responsible for helping students enhance their learning through hands-on clinical experience.

I am excited to be a faculty member in the Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program at Seton Hall University. I have been an adjunct here since 2010 and during that time have developed a love and respect for the program and university. I became the Director of Clinical Education in February 2013 and look forward to helping build and grow the MSAT program.

My professional background includes working in a variety of athletic training settings including college, high school, clinic, industrial and academia. This diverse background has helped prepare me to function as the Director of Clinical Education. From 2003-2008, I served as Program Director for the Athletic Training Education Program at North Carolina Central University. Most recently I've been working in Industrial Health, which is a growing setting for athletic trainers.

My main research interests lie in the development of non-traditional athletic training settings.
