Athletic training at C-SC offers a personal touch
Athletic training students learn about care and
prevention of athletic injuries.
Culver-Stockton's athletic training program has been accredited for more than two years.
"With the new academic calendar, the program will allow students to focus on internships and clinical experience," said Rob Carmichael, senior lecturer in athletic training, associate athletic trainer, and athletic training education program director. "It will allow students a lot more opportunities than under our current system."
According to Carmichael, the C-SC program is able to provide much more individual attention to students because of its smaller size.
"Students must complete 750 clinical hours in a variety of different settings and with health-care professionals," Carmichael said, adding, "We not only want our students to be exposed to as many of our varsity athletics programs as possible, but we also want them to learn how those athletic trainers deal with other types of athletes/patients and what the daily responsibilities of athletic trainers in other settings may entail."
"Our program allows a lot more one-on-one attention from certified athletic trainers and more experience with actual sports and athletes because of our size," said Jessica DeMarco, senior athletic training major.
"We gain relationships with athletic trainers outside the class, which is more personal than at other schools," added Kristin Allen, senior athletic training major.
Students test out their new skills.

Culver-Stockton College is about to begin an innovative curriculum called EXP@CSC that will redefine the college and better prepare C-SC students for the global marketplace of the 21st century.

Zach Rosenberger became the first Culver-Stockton College athlete to win a track and field event in more than 30 years last Friday when he topped the field in the pole vault at the University of Central Missouri Indoor Track and Field Invitational in Warrensburg, Mo.
Rosenberger, a sophomore from Columbia City, Ind., recorded a height of 15 feet, 1 inch in winning the event by nearly a foot over the second-place finisher, Kyle Shelton, Central Methodist. The jump is also a new modern day school record, topping Rosenberger's own mark of 14 feet, 1¼ inches last week at the Panther Open at the University of Northern Iowa.
Other top 10 finishers included Josh Alm, a junior from Santa Barbara, Calif., who placed fifth in the men's 400-meter dash with a time of 53.12 seconds, and Jordan Cox, a freshman from Sullivan, Mo., placed eighth in the men's long jump with a distance of 19 feet, 11½ inches.
In other events, Jordan Bucklew and Marcus Barnett recorded the 21st best time in the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.87 seconds. Bucklew also had the 17th best throw in the shot put with a throw of 40 feet, 7½ inches. Anthony Jahr placed 11th in the weight throw with a throw of 39 feet, 9½ inches.
The Wildcats will continue their season this Saturday, February 2, at the Titan Open at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Ill.
