Physical Exam and Medical History: Students must submit documentation of a recent physical examination by a physician of the student’s choice. This must be completed prior to beginning observation experiences during the prospective semester.
Written Technical Standards: The written technical standards verify that the student is capable of meeting minimum standards relating to physical, mental, and emotional health with or without accommodations. The student must read and sign this form. Students who require accommodation to meet the technical standards must submit appropriate documentation to the Center for Student Academic Support and obtain verification so that the program can provide reasonable accommodation. This form must be completed prior to beginning coursework in the MAT.
Health Requirements: Prior to beginning supervised professional practice experiences and annually thereafter, students must complete online training in blood-borne pathogens, HIPAA, the Right to Know (OSHA communication standard), and TB prevention. Prior to beginning supervised professional practice experiences and annually thereafter, students are required to present proof of the following immunizations and screenings to the School of Nursing: TB test (using CDC guidelines for two step method or chest X-ray), measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (TdaP), hepatitis B, varicella and flu. These may be done at the Alexander Health Center on campus for a fee or at a private physician’s office. For some immunizations, a declination waiver may be signed in lieu of immunization records.
Criminal Background Check: Students are required to submit to a criminal background check upon formal admission to the program as required by the contract with off-campus clinical agencies. This will allow proper placement of students for supervised professional practice rotations.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR): Students must provide documentation of American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers certification upon completion of ATRG 4116/6116 and must maintain continuous certification throughout the remainder of the program.
Liability Insurance: Liability insurance is required for all students who have been formally accepted into the athletic training program. Liability insurance policy premium fees are automatically billed to the student’s account through the University Business Office.
Apprentice Licensure Status: Students are required to obtain apprentice athletic trainer status through the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision upon formal admission to the program.
Transportation and Uniforms: Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to off-campus clinical sites and are required to buy their own uniforms (some uniforms will be provided by the athletic department), in accordance with the program dress code. (See ATRG Student Handbook for dress code.)
