Experiential Learning

Outside of the traditional classroom, our students gain clinical experience as an athletic trainer for Luther College athletics. This hands on experience is a great benefit for our students and is unique to any college experience.

In addition to Norse Athletics, students are able to gain off-campus clinical experience in any of the following areas:

  • Physical therapy observation
  • Athletic training internships at sports medicine clinics
  • Clinical observation with higher level health care professionals such as: physical therapy, podiatry, radiology, and college health services

Some organizations our students have recently observed or actively assisted at include:

  • Winneshiek Medical Center (Decorah, Iowa)
  • Team Rehab (Decorah, Iowa)
  • Euro Team Physical Therapy Clinic (Decorah, Iowa)
  • Gunderson Lutheran Clinic (Decorah, Iowa)
  • Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center (Rochester, Minn.)
