So as an athletic training student here at Emory I am required to get a certain amount of clinical experience hours and a certain amount of proficiencies from our clinical packets each semester. For this journal I am going to be focusing on my progress in my clinical packet for this semester. Each student is required to complete 70% or more of their clinical packets so for the junior clinical packet 84 masteries is the minimum. Honestly I would say that this clinical packet is probably the most challenging so far and that is because it’s heavily focused on General Medical conditions. We do not typically see a lot of those medical conditions in our athletic environment here at Emory which is what makes it challenging. But the in-class scenarios, lab assignments and even PBLs have helped me obtained quite a few attempts and masteries for this clinical packet. With spring break fast approaching I have noticed that I have had a slow start to the semester in regards to my packet. I do have a lot of attempts that I actually need to fill out in my packet which I plan to do over break so that I can come back ready to obtain some masteries and progress on attempts. I also plan to begin working with my preceptors during clinical and progress on the general medical conditions as I feel that I will not see many during my clinical rotations. I hope to progress on the rehab proficiencies in the clinic and through our rehab project for the semester. For this week I’ve obtained 0 attempts and 0 masteries towards my clinical packet.
