Athletic Training Students Respond to Emergency During Clinical Experience

University of Mobile Athletic Training Education Program students applied their classroom knowledge in a real-life emergency situation during Fall 2011 semester.

While participating in a clinical experience course at a local high school under the supervision of Director of Athletic Training Dr. William Carroll, six UMobile athletic training students were notified of a person in the stands who had lost consciousness.

The UMobile students sprang into action, checking vital signs, treating for shock and working to stabilize the stricken individual until emergency crews arrived.

“Without the quick and knowledgeable response of these athletic training students, the outcome could have been much more dire,” Carroll said. The student responders were Chris Blount, Jordan Meadown, Fernando Paiva, Ambria Phillips, Rebecca Vice and Land Vukadin.

The UMobile Athletic Training Education Program in the School of Education includes rigorous academic coursework paired with hands-on supervised clinical experiences.

The University of Mobile is a Christian university located in Mobile, Ala., on an 880-acre campus near Gulf Coast beaches. Approximately 1,800 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, School of Christian Studies, School of Education, School of Nursing, Center for Performing Arts and Center for Adult Programs.
