Athletic Training students and faculty visited Ireland during spring break to discover the countryside and experience academic studies and clinical settings. The 11 students, led by Allison Hetrick, Athletic Training clinical coordinator and Dana Voelker, Sport and Exercise Psychology assistant professor, enjoyed breath-taking views at the Cliffs of Moher, traveled to Northern Ireland, explored the Giant’s Causeway and enjoyed local cuisine.
Students visited Trinity College to catch a glimpse of the Book of Kells. The travelers attended classes at Dublin City College, for both athletic training and non-athletic training studies. The athletic training group learned how the clinical setting in Ireland works, comparing differences during the clinic.
The non-athletic training students also participated in a Med Ex Clinic on campus that elderly, heart and/or lung patients go to twice a week for rehab and health maintenance.
