Advanced Clinical Practice
All applicants admitted into the Post-Professional Athletic Training Program at Indiana University are awarded a graduate assistantship. The program offers a number of advanced clinical practice opportunities. In addition to positions in IU Division 1 intercollegiate athletics and area high schools and middle schools, there are a number of unique clinical opportunities with the performing arts and military medicine.
Our performing arts medicine program includes athletic training service to the world-renowned Jacobs School of Music (musicians and ballet majors), as well as to the prestigious contemporary dance program. Graduate assistants will also be given the opportunity to gain experience working with marching band, theater, touring Broadway shows and musicals, and competitive cultural dance.
The IU athletic training program also has developed relationships with our Army and Air Force ROTC programs. Graduate assistants are afforded the opportunity to provide specialized care to these tactical athletes, with an emphasis on prevention and education.
All of our graduate students have the opportunity to be clinical preceptors educating and supervising the students in IU's CAATE-accredited Professional Athletic Training Program.
