Clinical Experience and Internships
  • Athletic Training Majors

    Classroom instruction is important ... but athletic training is all about hands-on experience.
    As an athletic training major at Capital, you will coordinate the prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of athletes' injuries under the direction of a team physician and the supervisor of certified athletic trainers.

    Athletic trainers have a wide variety of career options. And we want you to explore the areas that interest you most. Our metropolitan Columbus location gives you access to an amazing variety of real-world clinical experiences, including:

    • Completing rotations in your choice of 18 intercollegiate sports teams
    • Observing surgeries at sports medicine clinics
    • Assist in teaching prevention and conditioning at urban, suburban and rural high schools
    • Assisting in physicians' offices and rehabilitation centers
    • Educating and training the members of corporate fitness centers

    Want to make your resume stand out in the crowd? Go beyond your clinical requirements and do an internship. No matter what kind of real-world experience you crave, your adviser can make it happen ... even if it's never been done before. You can even arrange an internship abroad.
    Athletic training students have completed internships with:

    • Toledo Mud Hens
    • Columbus Crew
    • Children's Hospital of Cincinnati
    • Columbus Clippers

    With all the options we give you for hands-on learning, expanding your horizons has never been more rewarding.

    Exercise Science and Health and Fitness Management Majors

    Junior exercise science majors are required to complete an on-campus practicum for experience working one-on-one with individuals/clients. They learn to assess fitness levels, establish reasonable fitness goals and work with experienced faculty to design and monitor the progress of strength and conditioning programs for these individuals.

    Senior exercise science majors are required to complete a senior seminar class where they learn to synthesize their undergraduate experiences as they prepare to graduate. Emphasis is placed on the development of presentation and interview skills, the development of educational programs and preparation for various certification exams and possible graduate study.

    Exercise science majors also are required to complete an internship experience. The Columbus metropolitan and suburban areas afford a vast array of resources for our students. One can find Capital University student interns in many local health and wellness clubs, country clubs and corporate fitness facilities. This internship experience provides each senior with an opportunity to refine their fitness and interpersonal skills and provides the student opportunities to network in the area of health and wellness.
