So far, my favorite part of clinical experience has been getting to know the athletes and getting to work so close with the athletes. I love this part the most because i myself am an athlete. I understand the struggle of playing a sport in college, which allows for me to connect with the athlete I am treating on a deeper level. I also think that it makes me give better treatments because I truly understand how beneficial and helpful a really good treatment is for the athlete. It is special for me because not only do I socialize with these athletes in the AT room, but I also talk to them out of class. They thank me for all the help I give them in and out of the AT room, which means a lot to me.
