On-Campus Clinical Sites

Your curriculum in the Athletic Training Education Program will include six clinical rotations, each with a minimum of 150 hours. The first three rotations are completed on North Park's campus in clinical learning facilities and with our intercollegiate sports teams. The second three rotations are completed at various, affiliated off-campus sites.

Your on-campus clinical experiences will be supervised by certified athletic trainers and physicians, including professor Andrew Lundgren, head athletic trainer Eric McQuaid, and medical director Dr. Poonam Thacker. As you take what you learn in the classroom to hands-on athletic training practice, you’ll work alongside your instructors and provide training services to North Park’s Division III athletic teams.

Our on-campus facilities were designed specifically to give athletic training students hands-on experience. Our combined classroom/laboratory enables every class session to combine lecture and lab work. Our research room allows new athletic training students to practice their skills while being mentored by a more advanced student. Our athletic training rooms include state-of-the-art equipment for use by both our athletic training students and athletes.
