This medical school-quality gross anatomy lab gives Clarke students an opportunity to learn with the best resources. Having 10 cadavers in the lab increases the probability of finding interesting surgical procedures and observing anomalies, which enhance learning opportunities.

Under the supervision of a licensed physician, athletic trainers administer immediate emergency and follow-up care. They develop athletic injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation programs using their knowledge of biomechanics, anatomy and pathology.

5 our Alumni nursing Megan Webber Nursing 08; Master s in Nursing 13 Megan was hired into the Nurse Residency Program at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison right after graduating from Clarke in She has worked as a staff nurse for over five years in general surgery and trauma. After getting her master s from Clarke in 2013, she was offered a new position at UW as a nursing education specialist. As an undergrad in Clarke s nursing program, I felt I was as prepared for the real world of nursing as I could be. Having three years of clinicals and the senior preceptorship, where I was paired with an ICU nurse at Mercy, was extremely beneficial and are opportunities that are not available at all schools of nursing. I made some close friends and still try to keep in touch with the faculty that was there six years ago. athletic training Andrew Accacian Athletic Training 08; Minors in Biology and History In 2010, Andrew completed his Master s of Science in Exercise Science at Syracuse University. There he served as graduate assistant athletic trainer providing athletic training services for football and assisting with all other intercollegiate sports. He is currently the assistant athletic trainer at the University of Dubuque providing athletic training services to all sports. Clarke provided me an excellent environment to not only grow and develop as a professional but also as a person. The individual attention I received from the professors within the Athletic Training department was unparalleled. In addition, I was provided the opportunity to interact with a variety of athletic trainers within the Dubuque community, in various settings.
