Athletic Training Teaching Lab

Location:  Room 213 Forker

The Athletic Training Teaching Laboratory is a vital component of the Athletic Training Master’s Program (MATR).   The lab is a remarkable educational space that is conducive to learning.  Here students will gain knowledge and get hands-on instruction as they progress to become future health care providers.  

The Athletic Training Teaching Laboratory provides dedicated space for didactic and clinical education for the program.  In its current configuration, the 2,277 square foot space can accommodate 24 students. 

Convertible desks can be transitioned quickly into padded exam tables to accommodate hands-on learning and provide a more functional environment for patient examination and care.  The tables offer great flexibility in instruction and can quickly go back and forth between didactic and clinical education.  Also located within the teaching lab is a dedicated taping/bracing area and ample space for functional assessment and rehabilitation.  The teaching lab also contains many supplies and equipment students have access to and will learn to use throughout the program.
