Pitt Football Training Facilities

Students will complete clinical education experiences during each of the four semesters in the professional phase of the program under the direct supervision of clinical instructors who plan, direct, advise, and evaluate the students' athletic training clinical experience and demonstration of clinical proficiency on a prescribed set of skills and behaviors. The program utilizes four athletic training facilities on the Pitt campus. 

In addition, affiliation agreements have been established with Carnegie Mellon University, the UPMC Center for Sports Medicine, the Pittsburgh Steelers and seven local area high schools, providing a wide variety of practice settings for students to gain practical, hands-on patient care experiences. In the two years of the professional phase of the program, students will have the opportunity to interact with and provide athletic training services for athletes and physically active patients from a variety of sports and risk levels, varying levels of competition and those from the same and opposite gender.
