Abstract: ATHLETIC TRAINING professional preparation has undergone tremendous reform in the past decade, placing a greater emphasis on outcomes-based education. Outcomes-based education requires clinical proficiency assessment, which reflects the synthesis of foundational professional behaviors with cognitive and psychomotor competencies. Clinical proficiencies relate to a student'S critical thinking, decision making. skill application, and overall ability to function in real patient care situations. However. due to the somewhat unpredictable nature of the clinical environment, educators often need to simulate clinical problems to assess clinical proficiencies.
