Updated and greatly expanded with new modules that cover all the clinical proficiencies of the 1999 NATA Athletic Training Education Competencies this third edition of Ken Knight's popular text is better than ever. In fact, it's the most flexible clinical education tool available today to athletic training students.

Assessing Clinical Proficiencies in Athletic Training: A Modular Approach, Third Edition, sports a new title and is organized in an easy-to-use modular format. It now contains 119 clinical modules including 38 new modules organized into 21 areas of clinical interest and spread over 4 levels of competencies.

Each module contains learning objectives, competencies, and helpful references plus space for athletic training instructors to record student progress.

The book strongly supports peer teaching a system that helps students remember subject matter long after the "test" and enhances their knowledge through the teaching of other students. The modules require students to develop and demonstrate skills and reinforce knowledge through peer-teaching. Specific peer teaching modules provide valuable direction to advanced athletic training students instructing younger students.

The new modules reflect the latest NATA competencies so that students know exactly what is expected to meet their requirements. Modules can be reorganized to fit different program requirements even though specific competencies are required of everyone, athletic training educators often need to customize programs to meet specific student needs.

The content of this edition has been revised, too, to mirror the course organization most athletic programs follow.

The book has these user-friendly features:
-Instructions and an appendix for customizing the book for specific athletic training programs

-Sample questions that provide practical advice on administering oral and practice exams plus suggested items to include on exams
Assessing Clinical Proficiencies in Athletic Training: A Modular Approach, Third Edition, is the first source educators will turn to when developing programs. Athletic training students will find this orderly resource invaluable as they develop their clinical skills over their four-year journey to professional mastery.
