Kent State University Athletic Training Rooms
Kent State Athletic Training Students are exposed to two athletic training rooms while in their on-campus clinical rotations. One of these facilities is housed in the MAC Center building and is known as the MAC Center athletic training room. The sports that primarily work out of this athletic training room are men's basketball, women's basketball, wrestling, gymnastics, volleyball, and cross country. The other athletic training room is located at the football stadium. This athletic training room is known as the John Faulstick athletic training room. This athletic training room was recently renamed this past year after John Faulstick, who dedicated 30 years of his life to Kent State as the head athletic trainer. The sports that primarily work out of this athletic training room are football, baseball, softball, women's soccer, field hockey, and track & field. Within these facilities there are currently 6 full-time staff certified athletic trainers and 6 ATEP faculty members that serve as preceptors for our athletic training students. Additionally, there are 4 graduate assistants that also act as preceptors to our students at these facilities.
ATEP Competency Laboratory
The Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) has outstanding facilities that provide all the equipment essential to the acquisition of clinical and academic skills. The ATEP recently underwent a massive renovation that now provides a state-of-the-art facility for students to practice their clinical skills in. This laboratory also supports current research that is going on within the ATEP. Adjacent to the competency labs is the ATEP classroom. These rooms can be located at 221 and 222 MACC Annex.
