Health Science: 3+1 Pre-Chiropractic
Bachelor of Science (BS)
College of St Joseph in Rutland, VT
The College of St. Joseph and the University of Western States have established a 3+1 Pre-Chiropractic program. Under the program, students will matriculate at the College of St. Joseph for a minimum of 90 semester credits in course work leading toward a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. Acceptance of transfer credits or testing toward the completion of the degree requirements will be determined by current College of St. Joseph policies. Following completion of course work at CSJ, the University of Western States shall accept, for the entrance date of their choice, all students who have successfully completed the Pre-Chiropractic Program with a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher and meet all other criteria for admission, including letters of recommendation, personal interview, etc. Students who earn less than a 3.25 GPA, but at least a 2.75 GPA will be eligible for admission to UWS and will receive appropriate consideration in the admission process for having completed the Pre-Chiropractic Program, but will not receive the assurance of a seat reserved for students earning a 3.25 or higher GPA. Students must apply to the University of Western States one year in advance of the desired entrance date and must complete all required application procedures in a timely manner including submission of recommendation and a satisfactory interview. Students enrolled in the 3+1 Pre-Chiropractic program who successfully complete all course work in the first 3 quarters at UWS with C’s or better will be granted the Bachelor of Science from the College of St. Joseph, provided all graduation requirements have been satisfied. Students will pay the appropriate tuition and fees to each institution for all course work taken at that institution. During the first year of study at UWS, students will not be registered for courses at CSJ but will pay any fees required to maintain their registration toward the baccalaureate degree. Upon completion of the first year of study at UWS, students will be responsible for any fees regularly charged by CSJ for transfer of credits and awarding the Bachelor of Science degree.

School Library Media Specialist
Non-Degree Course
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
The University of Vermont offers graduate educational opportunities for those interested in school library media studies to gain licensure in Vermont, or to acquire a graduate degree in school library media. School Library Media Specialists are educational leaders and resource specialists in pre-K schools who collaborate with other educators to provide equitable access to resources and information for all students. The School Library Media Sequence reflects current standards for school librarianship as described by the American Association for School Librarians (AASL), the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), and Vermont Standards for Educators. The School Library Media Studies Sequence of six graduate-level courses is designed for both those with and without teacher certification. Non-educators may need additional coursework. The curriculum addresses the essential competencies for School Library Media Specialists required by the State of Vermont, as listed within the Educator Licensing website, but licensure is not automatic. Courses in the sequence are delivered using a combination of face to face classroom meetings, online work, and online synchronous sessions during the semester. For most educators, who are already certified, the basic courses in the series will provide competencies leading to licensure in the State of Vermont. For those not currently certified as educators, additional competencies will be required. All participants are encouraged to contact the Vermont Agency of Education Licensing Office for a preliminary conversation about requirements for licensure based on individual circumstances. All the courses in the sequence are upper level/graduate courses and are embedded in a strand of the UVM Master of Education Program in Curriculum and Instruction. For those who may want to pursue an advanced degree, the courses can be combined with other education courses that will lead to the MEd. Contact the College of Education and Social Services for more information.

Kinesiology: Pre Athletic Training
Bachelor of Science (BS)
Castleton University in Castleton, VT
The professional education program in Athletic Training is three years in duration and follows one or more years as a pre-AT student. Entry into the professional program is selective and competitive. The professional program includes both didactic (classroom) and clinical education segments. These two segments should not be viewed as separate entities, as they are closely linked together. The didactic portion focuses on the cognitive development of competencies and many laboratory opportunities to develop psychomotor skills, while the clinical portion provides opportunities for the student to experience real-world application of skills and to develop the professional behaviors of a certified athletic trainer. The clinical education would not be as helpful without the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom, and visa versa the classroom knowledge and skills would not be as effective in the development of a competent athletic trainer without the experiential learning provided in the clinical portion of the program. In order for a student to be successful in this program he/she MUST take responsibility for his/her education and seek every opportunity to learn and improve. A student will not learn by simply “having exposure” to ideas and experiences, but will learn when he/she purposefully seeks to engage in those ideas and experiences. Students should be encouraged to ask questions of their academic and clinical instructors, to use the many available resources in this program, and to constantly seek feedback about ways to improve their level of knowledge and proficiency. The NATA Education Council provides CAATE-accredited athletic training education programs with a document called “Athletic Training Educational Competencies.” Programs must use this document when structuring the didactic and clinical education experience for students. The competencies, the clinical proficiencies, and the foundational behaviors of professional practice are integrated into the Castleton Athletic Training Program. Students will complete six semesters of clinical activities. Clinical activities occur as part of clinical courses and credit hours are earned for them. These courses include both formal assessment of clinical proficiencies through individual work with a preceptor, and “real world” clinical field experiences to include assignments with men’s and women's varsity athletic teams, cooperative experiences at other area colleges and high schools, and rotations through Killington Medical Clinic, the Vermont Orthopedic Clinic, Rutland Regional Medical Center Emergency Room, Castleton Family Health, Slate Valley Physical Therapy, and Ashcroft Chiropractic Clinic. Learning Over Time (Mastery of Skills): Definition: The process by which professional knowledge and skills are learned and evaluated. This process involves the initial formal instruction and evaluation of that knowledge and skill, followed by a time of sufficient length to allow for practice and internalization of the information/skill, and then subsequent re-evaluation of that information/skill in a clinical (actual or simulated) setting (CAATE Clinical Education Terminology). Learning Over Time at Castleton: The athletic training program at Castleton will use the following components for teaching, evaluating, and documenting clinical education: Competency Assessment, Proficiency Assessment, Clinical Field Experience, Program Competency Examinations, and Portfolio Development. Each component is further explained below. Competency Assessment: Cognitive and Psychomotor competencies are formally taught within the didactic courses. A complete list of didactic courses included in the AT Program can be found in the college catalog, or in the AT Program Student Handbook under “AT Program Course Sequence”. Once the student passes an AT course, he/she can then use the learned skills within the clinical field experience under the supervision of a preceptor. Those AT courses that have a significant amount of psychomotor skill development built into the course have a lab or “hands on” component in which the student can practice learned skills. Students must receive a B- or better grade in each course listed below. If the student does not receive a B- in these courses, he/she must retake the course and will not be allowed to use the learned skills in the field experience assignment until the required course grade is achieved. Introduction to the Athletic Training Profession Anatomical Aspects of Sports Medicine Emergency Care and Personal Safety Practicum in Athletic Training Evaluation and Mgmt of Injuries- Lower Evaluation and Mgmt of Injuries- Upper Therapeutic Interventions I Therapeutic Interventions II Admin of A.T. and Sports Med Programs Evaluation and Mgmt of Injuries- Head, Neck and Trunk Applied Nutrition and Weight Control Pharmacology and General Medical Conditions Senior Seminar in Athletic Training Proficiency Assessment: The Proficiency Assessment will occur in each of the five clinical courses. A preceptor will be assigned to recheck skills learned in previous coursework. The purpose of the Proficiency Assessment is to place the student in a clinical experience where previously learned skills can be synthesized and integrated into a decision-making environment. A Proficiency Assessment ensures that the student has mastered the particular skills that have been assessed. Supervised Clinical Field experience The Supervised Clinical Field Experience is where experiential learning occurs. Students are assigned to a variety of settings with patients engaged in a range of activities with conditions described in athletic training knowledge, skills and clinical abilities, role delineation study and standards of practice delineated for a certified athletic trainer in the profession. Skills that are learned during clinical education are REFINED and APPLIED here. Note: An athletic training student shall NOT perform any skills in the clinical field experience UNTIL the Competency Assessment of the skills has been completed (i.e. completed coursework). The Supervised Clinical Field Experience is a component of each of the clinical courses. A progressive assessment tool has been developed to allow the preceptor to evaluate the performance of the ATS at each level of clinical advancement in the program. Program Competency Examinations Students in Level 2 and Level 4 of the AT Program will be required to take cumulative competency examinations. Level 2 students will complete the exam as a component of the Clinical 2 course, and they must score a minimum of 70% or better on the exam to pass the course. Students will have the opportunity to retake the exam within 2-3 weeks of the test. Failure to pass the exam will delay the start of the next clinical experience course in the following semester. Level 4 students will take the exam as a component of the Senior Seminar in Athletic Training course. Students who do not achieve a score of 70% or greater on this examination may be denied clearance to register for the BOC exam until they meet the passing point. Portfolio The portfolio includes documents that demonstrate the student’s progress throughout the educational experience and provides evidence of his/her competency and proficiency as he/she progresses through the athletic training education program and into the profession of athletic training.
