Athletic Training services at the John F. Kennedy Space Center are evidence based, detail oriented and metric driven, providing an exceptional clinical experience to help AT students achieve new heights in the pursuit of becoming proficient medical professionals.
Our unique setting provides an opportunity for the AT student to interact with a patient demographic that is quite different than your typical sport-focused athletic training environment. During their clinical experience, students learn new ways to apply the knowledge, skills and abilities that they have already acquired and continue to develop new skills to launch their careers into the future and beyond!
The RehabWorks Clinic is at the leading edge of Physical Medicine and Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation. Our AT clinicians implement therapeutic techniques and modalities that are tissue and mechanism specific to accomplish high quality, patient-rated and objective driven outcomes in restoring function and quality of life for all of our patients.
We continually develop our clinical practice though research, discussion, and application of the newest evidence based medicine and therapeutic techniques. This daily process improvement is organically driven by our highly intelligent and very inquisitive patients. Our patient population is comprised of engineers, rocket scientists, and aerospace professionals who regularly ask probing questions that contribute to the critical thinking and decision algorithms that occurs during the course of a patient appointment.
The RehabWorks staff will help interested Clinical Experience students locate a good, safe and local living situation. We want our students to have a wonderful overall experience, including their experiences outside of the clinic on Florida’s Space Coast.
