The MSAT program is a comprehensive curriculum designed to integrate formal and rigorous classroom instruction with clinical educational experiences in a variety of allied healthcare settings.
Our students obtain plenty of real-world experience during our 9-part clinical rotation sequence. Students who want to gain even more experience can use the summer between year 1 and year 2 to perform an internship anywhere in the country. So far, here is where our students have interned:
Franklin College Athletic Training (FCAT) Club is our recognized student organization that supports students in developing events and activities outside of the classroom. It assists with funding expenses for MSAT students to attend state and regional professional athletic training conferences so students have minimal out-of-pocket expenses. It also offers great experiences for networking and building relationships with future employers!
Franklin College MSAT students complete independent research on a topic of their interest. Independent research gives students an opportunity to explore, specialize and share findings of their clinically relevant research. While all students present their research on campus, past student research projects have resulted in peer-reviewed journal publications and presentations at professional conferences such as the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers’ Association Annual Meeting and Clinical Symposium and the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting. Franklin College MSAT student research projects earned back-to-back top-scoring abstracts at the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers’ Association Annual Meeting in 2022 and 2023 annual meetings!
