Prior to completing any McKay-Dee Hospital or any other IHC Rotation, please complete and submit the following forms to the Clinical Education Coordinator.
Students may complete clinical and service hours over the summer and winter breaks. HOWEVER, students must purchase their own personal liability insurance. These hours count towards the next semester hours and students can earn up to 1/3 of the hours required in the next semester during the breaks. Students may earn ALL of their service hours over the summer/winter breaks and these will also count towards the next semester requirements.
If you plan to do any clinical or service hours over either summer or winter break, you need to contact the Clinical Education Coordinator, Matt Donahue to ensure that:
1. The location where you plan to do your hours is appropriate
2. You have liability insurance on file (if you don't, instructions on how to purchase your own policy is below.)
You MUST give a hard copy to the Clinical Education Coordinator prior to beginning these hours.
To purchase a policy:
Go to: www.hpso.com
1.) Under the Professional Liability Insurance Tab, click on Individual
2.) Choose Utah for the state and then Athletic Trainer under profession
3.) Click on the second bubble to "Find your annual premium rate" and click on Next
4.) Double-check that #1 says Utah, #2 says Athletic Trainer
5.) Under #3, choose Student and then click on Continue
Your annual premium will be approximately $37. After the break is over, you can cancel your policy and receive a pro-rated refund. Or, you can hang onto the policy in case you decide to complete clinical hours over another break. You will need to pay online with a credit card or print the form and mail it in with a check.
