Welcome to the Athletic Training Education Program! This manual has been designed to provide
Lock Haven University’s athletic training students with Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP)
guidelines. It is the athletic training student’s responsibility to be knowledgeable of the contents of
this manual. Students seeking admission to the program will be expected to follow these policies and
procedures while gaining experience in any of the ATEP’s clinical sites. Students selected for and
accepting admission into the Athletic Training Education Program will be expected to adhere to the
policies and procedures described in this manual as stated in their acceptance contract. Any questions
about the contents of this manual should be directed to the Athletic Training Education Program
Director.




                               Historical Overview of the Program

The Athletic Training Education Program at Lock Haven University was
developed and sustained through the initial efforts of Mr. David Tomasi. The
program was initially recognized by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association in
the fall of 1977. At this time, Mr. Tomasi was the sole athletic trainer involved
with the ATEP. There were approximately eight students enrolled.

By 1980, a second certified athletic trainer was employed at the University in the
ATEP. Both certified athletic trainers were appointed faculty rank and given
release time to perform athletic training duties. During this time, the program
continued to flourish with 24 Athletic Training Students formally enrolled in the program.

Through the efforts of Mr. Tomasi and other Health Science faculty, the program has grown to enroll
approximately fifty-five professional phase athletic training students and now includes many local
high schools and colleges as affiliated sites. In December of 1998, David Tomasi retired from his
position of Program Director. He was elected to the Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society Hall of
Fame in 2001 for his service to LHU, his students, and the profession of athletic training. Mr. Tomasi
passed away in the spring of 2002 but will always be remembered as the father of LHU’s Athletic
Training Education Program.

Currently, the Athletic Training Education Program has six faculty members and three Graduate
Assistants. All athletic training faculty members teach courses in the Department of Health Science
in addition to serving as athletic trainers for Lock Haven Varsity Athletic Teams.

                                       Program Description

Program Overview
Lock Haven University’s Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) is housed in the Health
Science Department which is part of the College of Education and Human Services. The Program has
been in existence since the 1970s and was initially recognized by the National Athletic Trainers’
Association in 1977.

The ultimate purpose of the Athletic Training Education Program at Lock Haven University is to
provide a comprehensive academic and clinical education for students seeking a career in athletic
training. The Program accomplishes this in the following ways:
      By offering a strong, multi-disciplinary foundation in the natural and applied sciences
      By providing a challenging, open, stimulating learning environment in the classroom and
         clinical settings
      By encouraging its students to reflect critically, communicate effectively, and conduct
         themselves professionally
      By providing the student with the incentive and skills necessary to be a self-directed learner
         and remain current in the profession of athletic training
      By equipping the student with the ability to advance the profession of athletic training
      By presenting and integrating up-to-date didactic and clinical information based on the six
         domains of athletic training



Philosophy
Lock Haven University’s Athletic Training Education
Program is an intense, student-centered experience. A
small class size allows the Program faculty to
individually address each student’s needs and academic
strengths and weaknesses. The Program is based on the
philosophy that education is a life-long process and that
Program graduates should be strong critical thinkers
who are capable of making independent evidence-based
decisions. The ATEP strives to produce well-rounded,
skilled athletic training professionals who have
established and are working towards long-range
professional and personal goals while being productive
members of the athletic training profession.

LHU ATEP Student Handbook

Curriculum Design and Courses
The Program utilizes a competitive admission process. Students typically apply during the first
semester of their sophomore year. Decisions regarding the students’ acceptance are made prior to the
start of the spring semester. Once admitted, students begin an intense, five-semester long
professional education that focuses on the most up-to-date didactic and clinical athletic training
content.

Students enrolled in the ATEP are required to complete the degree program of at least 120 credit
hours and the Program’s requirements as recognized by Lock Haven University and the State System
of Higher Education (SSHE) of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The ATEP is housed within the
Department of Health Science. Upon successful Program completion, students will be awarded the
Bachelor of Science Degree with an Athletic Training Major. All ATEP required courses are
integrated into this major and meet the eligibility requirements for certification by the BOC. The
ATEP course sequence is hierarchical in nature with a strong scientific background.

Description of the Profession
An athletic trainer is a qualified allied health care professional educated and experienced in the
management of health care problems associated with physical activity. In cooperation with
physicians and other allied health personnel, the athletic trainer functions as an integral member of
the athletic health care team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, professional sports
programs, sports medicine clinics, and other allied health care settings. The athletic trainer functions
in cooperation with medical personnel, athletic administrators, coaches, and parents in the
development and coordination of efficient and responsive athletic health care delivery systems.

The athletic trainer’s professional preparation is directed toward the development of specified
knowledge and skills in the professional domains of athletic training. Through a combination of
formal classroom instruction and clinical experiences, the athletic trainer is prepared to apply a wide
variety of specific health care skills and knowledge across a wide variety of patient populations in
various settings.

                                  Statement of Professional Conduct

Lock Haven University’s Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) has a rich history of
producing quality athletic trainers while providing exceptional athletic health care. The Program’s
faculty, graduate students, clinical instructors, and students should respect the history of the Program
and its reputation. The actions of its members are a reflection on the Program and the profession of
athletic training. All members of the ATEP are expected to maintain a level of professional conduct.

Professionalism
All members of the ATEP will act professionally while in the athletic training room. Appropriate
professional conduct includes, but is not limited to: following the dress code policies of the clinical
site, maintaining professional relationships with coaches, athletes, and peers, and following the
appropriate Codes of Ethics.

Responsibility
It is expected that all members of the ATEP will be responsible for their actions. Athletic Training is
a rigorous and time-consuming profession. Members will contact their immediate supervisor if they
are going to be late or miss a clinical rotation. Every effort should be made to contact the supervisor
prior to the start of the practice or game. In order to promote athletic training as a health care
profession, all members of the ATEP will act with maturity and dedication when representing the
Program.

Teamwork
ATEP members are part of a team that consists of athletes, coaches, athletic administrators, team
physicians, certified athletic trainers, and athletic training students. Successful athletic health care
relies on a professional relationship between all of its team members. Professional verbal and non-
verbal communication between all members is vital for successful athletic health care.


Any questions about the Statement of Professional Conduct should be brought to the ATEP Faculty
or the ATEP Director. Actions that reflect negatively on the Program or are in violation of the
aforementioned guidelines may result in disciplinary action as defined by the athletic training student
handbook.

Student Scheduling and Advisement Policy
Athletic training students will have an athletic training faculty member as their academic advisor.
Advising appointments will be scheduled in accordance with university policy. Students needing
advisement or counseling should plan to make an appointment with the faculty or meet with him/her
during office hours. Students should make every effort possible to schedule classes early in the day
as clinical experiences typically occur in the afternoon. Students should work with their academic
advisor to develop an appropriate schedule.

Those students interested in pursuing a second major in a department other than the Department of
Health Science are strongly encouraged to have an advisor in both departments. This will help ensure
that a student is taking the required courses of both majors.



Transfer Policy
Students wishing to transfer to Lock Haven University from another institution must submit detailed
syllabi and transcripts of grades to the Admissions Department of Lock Haven University. The
Admissions Department and Registrar’s Office will determine which transfer courses are accepted by
the University. Transfer of athletic training competency-bearing courses applied towards Program
requirements are subject to the approval of the Program Director. Appeals of these decisions may be
made to the appropriate Department Chairperson.

A student transferring to Lock Haven University can only become eligible as a candidate for the
ATEP after successful completion of the required academic courses (See Admission Process).
Transfer students are eligible to apply to the Program while concurrently enrolled in any of the
Program prerequisites; however, selection into the program will be contingent upon successful
academic completion of the course(s). A transfer student must complete one full semester of courses
at Lock Haven University in order to be eligible for Program admission. Transfer students will be
held to the same standards as other students applying to for entrance into the program.

minimum application standards are provided the opportunity to apply for conditional
admission. Students must apply for conditional admission in writing to the program director
within one week of final fall grades being posted. The letter should provide the student’s
justification for acceptance as well as a remedial plan for meeting the minimum academic
standards. Decisions regarding conditional admissions will be made on an individual basis
by the selection committee. Students accepted under conditional admission are expected to
meet all academic program standards before the fall of the junior (Level 3) year.

If an applicant with a disability is seeking admission to the Athletic Training Program and believes
that he/she is able to satisfy the (academic and) technical standards with or without an
accommodation, the applicant should contact the Disability Services Director. The Disability
Services Director will evaluate an applicant who states he/she could meet the program’s technical
standards with accommodation and confirm that the stated condition qualifies as a disability under
applicable law. The University will also determine whether it agrees that an applicant can meet the
academic and technical standards with a reasonable accommodation. This includes a review of
whether the accommodation(s) requested is/are reasonable, taking into account whether the
accommodation would jeopardize clinician/patient safety or would require the University to
fundamentally alter the nature of the Athletic Training Program in order to allow the applicant to
participate in the educational program. In addition, the University will determine whether the
requested accommodation(s) will create(s) any undue financial or administrative burden on the
University.

I certify that I have read and understand the academic and technical standards listed above, and I
believe to the best of my knowledge that I meet each of these standards with or without
accommodation.

Admission Contract
The Athletic Training Education Program at Lock Haven University is accredited by the Commission
on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education Programs. This organization requires adherence by
students to certain procedures and guidelines. These requirements, along with those mandated by the
Board of Certification, must be met for a student to be eligible for certification upon graduation. All
students, therefore, must agree to meet the requirements listed below:

1. Students in this program must complete five (5) semester hours of academic coursework and
clinical experiences as a professional phase student at Lock Haven University.

2. Students in this program, in addition to normal weekday practices and competitions, may be

has practices or competitions during these times. Also, students will be assigned to at least one off-
campus clinical experience. In these cases, students may be required to supply transportation to and
from these sites. Assignments will be made as early as possible by the Athletic Training Faculty in an
effort to ease planning for these circumstances.

3. Students must have a complete medical history, immunization record, and physical on file at the
Student Health Center in Glennon Infirmary. Students must also have a physician sign the Technical
Standards document. Students are required to undergo a Two Step Tuberculosis Skin Test and

Glennon Infirmary.

4. Students are required to purchase liability insurance. Insurance applications are available in the
Program Director’s office.

5. Students are expected to comply with all aspects of the ATEP Policy & Procedure Manual.

to do so will result in my dismissal from the Athletic Training Education Program. Additionally, I
have read and understand the disciplinary procedures outlined in the athletic training student manual.
If awarded a conditional admission, I agree to all terms outlined in the admission letter.

I, _____________________________ do NOT accept admission into the Athletic Education Program

LHU ATEP Student Handbook

Professional Program Length Policy
Students enrolled in the Athletic Training Education Program are expected to complete five
sequential semesters of academic and clinical coursework. Students must complete these five
semesters in order to be eligible for graduation from the Program and to sit for the BOC examination.
The Athletic Training Education Program faculty have the ability to waive this policy. All waiver
requests must be submitted to the Program Director one semester prior to the decision date. An
example of a possible waiver would be for students who wish to spend a semester studying abroad. If
an athletic training student wishes to spend a semester abroad, he or she must submit a written request
for a leave of absence from the ATEP to the Program Director the semester prior to traveling. The
student would then be expected to complete five clinical rotations in four academic semesters. This
will typically result in three clinical rotations occurring in one academic year.


Student Grievance Policy
Any grievance a student might have with the ATEP should first be brought to the attention of the
ATEP Program Director. If not resolved, the student can pursue other options such as the Health
Science Department Chair, the Dean of the College of Education and Human Services, or the Dean of
Student affairs as outlined in the LHU Student Handbook.

                            Athletic Training Education Program
                                 Clinical Education Policies

Clinical Education:
Clinical education is a fundamental component of the athletic training education program.
Students develop clinical competency, clinical reasoning skills, professional behaviors, and
the integration of evidence based practice within the confines of clinical education.
Professional phase students develop independent clinical decision-making skills through a
progression of five clinical experiences of increasing supervised autonomy.

General Policies:
The ATEP has created policies for students and clinical instructors to follow while they gain
clinical experience in LHU’s athletic training rooms or affiliated sites. These policies are in
place to maximize the learning that occurs during these experiences while protecting the
students from being used as a workforce or violations of the state’s athletic training practice
act. Students, staff and faculty are strongly encouraged to report any violations of these
policies to the Program Director or Chair of the Health Science Department. These policies
are to be followed whenever students are gaining clinical experience (except when noted).
     Students will be expected to follow the policies and procedures related to clinical
        experience as outlined in the LHU ATEP student handbook.
     Students will attend all clinical experience meetings unless approved by the Program
        Director or Clinical Coordinator.
     On average, students will not participate in more than 20 hours of clinical experience
        in a given week. This guideline is in effect from the first day of classes in the fall
        semester until the end of the spring semester excluding winter break.
     Students will have a minimum of one day per calendar week when they are not
        required to attend their clinical experience. This guideline is in effect from the first
        day of classes in the fall semester until the end of the spring semester excluding
        winter break.
     Students will be expected to return to campus before the start of classes in the fall,
        remain on-campus over holiday periods, and/or remain on-campus after spring
        graduation if required by their clinical experience assignment.
     Students will only perform athletic training skills while under the direct supervision
        of a clinical instructor.
     Students will only perform athletic training skills they have previously learned in the
        didactic setting.
     Students are not permitted to receive work study funds for clinical experiences.

Supervision:
Students enrolled in the ATEP will be directly supervised during clinical experiences. Direct
supervision implies that the clinical instructor is physically present and able to intervene on
behalf of the patient and/or the athletic training student. If the clinical instructor needs to


                                                                                               22
LHU ATEP Student Handbook

temporarily leave the clinical site, the athletic training student should know where his/her
supervising clinical instructor is and be able to quickly contact him/her or his/her designee.

Clinical Skill Development:
Athletic training students learn and develop clinical skills through a combination of didactic
and clinical coursework. The clinical skills are divided into psychomotor skills and clinical
proficiencies. The psychomotor skills are initially taught and evaluated in the
classroom/laboratory setting. The course instructor records these psychomotor skill
assessments into e-Value. Students can apply the skills in the clinical setting once they have
been instructed and evaluated on the skill in the classroom setting. The same psychomotor
skills are then evaluated the following semester as part of the Clinical Experience Course.
The Clinical Preceptor and/or Clinical Coordinator enters the results into e-Value. All
students must earn a score of “3” on each of the specific psychomotor skills as part of the
Clinical Experience Course. Once the student has earned a “3” on the psychomotor skill set,
the student can then complete the Proficiency Assessment for the skill. Ideally, Clinical
Proficiency Assessments occur during patient encounters. The Clinical Preceptor and/or
Clinical Coordinator enters the Proficiency Assessment as an “On the Fly” evaluation within
e-Value. THE ATEP POLICY IS THAT ALL STUDENTS MUST EARN AT LEAST A
73% ON ALL PROFICIENCY ASSESSMENTS PRIOR TO PROGRAM COMPLETION.

Assignment of Clinical Experiences:
Students enrolled in the professional phase of the ATEP will be assigned five clinical
experiences occurring at LHU and the program’s affiliated sites. Students are provided a
variety of clinical experiences with diverse patient populations in order to develop
competency and clinical proficiency within the domains of athletic training. Assignments are
made based upon the following guidelines:
     All students are assigned a minimum of one clinical experience with a high risk sport.
     All students are assigned a minimum of one clinical experience each with a male and
        female sport.
     All students are assigned a minimum of one off-campus clinical experience.
     All students are assigned an equipment intensive clinical experience.
     All students are assigned a general medical clinical experience.
     All students are assigned a rehabilitation intensive clinical experience.

Clinical Experience Requests:
Students are able to make requests related to clinical experiences. These special requests are
typically due to sports participation or employment; however, requests can also be made for
other reasons. All special requests for the upcoming academic year must be submitted in
writing to the ATEP Clinical Coordinator prior to Spring Break. Special requests due to
academic requirements will be given priority. An attempt will be made to honor all requests
as long as they do not interfere with the quality of the student’s clinical education.

Clinical Experiences Outside of the Traditional Academic Calendar:
Athletic training students may be required to complete clinical experiences which occur
outside of the traditional academic calendar. The policy of the ATEP is that clinical
instructors can require athletic training students to be present for clinical experiences that

                                                                                                 23
LHU ATEP Student Handbook

occur outside of the traditional semester. The only exception to this policy is in the spring
semester. Students may be required to continue clinical experiences past the date of spring
graduation unless they are a May graduate. May graduates will not be required to continue
their clinical experience on or past the date of the May commencement ceremony. Students
should contact their clinical instructor to determine the exact start date of their clinical
experience.

Internships:
Athletic training students have the option to complete an internship in lieu of either the fourth
or fifth clinical experience. Internships are established with off-campus clinical sites and are
typically semester-long experiences. Students interested in pursuing an internship must
inform the ATEP Clinical Coordinator prior to spring break of the junior year. All
internships must be approved by the ATEP Clinical Coordinator and Program Director.

Clinical Experiences and Extracurricular Activities including NCAA Sports Participation:
It is possible for athletic training students to participate in extracurricular activities and/or
intercollegiate athletics. However, the combination of the athletic training major and
extracurricular activities is time intensive, and the two often conflict with one another. It is
the policy of the ATEP to make every effort for students to participate in extracurricular
activities as long as the activity does not lessen the quality of the student athletic training
experience. In many cases, students who pursue both decide to stay an extra semester or year
to fulfill all necessary obligations.

Absences from Clinical Experiences:
Clinical experiences are to be treated as a traditional class; therefore, absence during clinical
experiences is discouraged. The athletic training student should notify his or her clinical
instructor of the absence prior to it occurring unless it is deemed an emergency. If an
emergency does occur the clinical instructor should be notified as soon as possible. Valid
reasons for absence during practice and games includes but not limited to illness, course
requirements, or death of a family member.

Absences from clinical experiences are seen as a significant distraction from the professional
preparation of athletic training students. Absences due to non-professional commitments are
discouraged. Repeated absences from clinical experiences will be reflected in the clinical
evaluation and can result in disciplinary action (see Disciplinary Policies and Procedures).

Dress Code:
To promote and increase a professional atmosphere, the following dress code will be strictly
enforced. Your attire should identify you as a member of the ATEP. Students participating
in clinical experiences shall wear appropriate professional attire as established by the clinical
instructor.

The first time a student is found in violation of the dress code, he/she will be sent home to
change. Subsequent violations will result in initiation of appropriate disciplinary procedures
as outlined in ATEP Student Handbook.


                                                                                               24
LHU ATEP Student Handbook

Inclimate Weather Policy:
Students enrolled in the ATEP are expected to attend classes and clinical experiences when
the University is open. University closings due to inclimate weather will be posted on the
University’s web page as well as on local television and radio stations. Students assigned to
off-campus clinical sites should follow the guidelines established by the affiliated site. If an
athletic training student is at all concerned about attending a clinical experience due to
weather, he or she should contact the clinical instructor and/or the ATEP Clinical
Coordinator.

Athletic Training Student Travel Policy:
Athletic training students will not travel with a team as part of their clinical experience unless
accompanied by an ATEP clinical instructor. If a clinical instructor is traveling with a team,
he or she can require students to travel. Clinical instructors should be aware of the possible
negative academic consequences that can occur as a result of repeated student travel.
Students gaining clinical experience with the LHU football and wrestling athletic trainer
frequently travel; however, students may also occur with other sports or off-campus
experiences. Faculty and clinical instructors are NOT permitted to require or pressure a
student to travel unaccompanied by a clinical instructor. If a student feels that he or she is
pressured to travel alone, they are to report it to the Program Director or Health Science
Department Chair.

General Information:
Professional phase athletic training students have the option of completing a semester-long
internship as their fourth or fifth clinical experience. The internships take place at off-
campus clinical settings under the direct supervision of a licensed healthcare provider.
Students must meet with the Clinical Coordinator and/or Program Director prior to initiating
the internship application process. It is advised all academic coursework be completed prior
to the internship; however, students may concurrently enroll in courses during the internship
semester with academic advisor and Program Director approval.
