Perceived Burnout in Undergraduate Athletic Training Students in New Hampshire

The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a correlation between number of clinical hours and perceived level of burnout for athletic training students enrolled in undergraduate programs within colleges and universities in New Hampshire. A comparison for significant difference between year in the major, clinical hours required each semester, and gender is being investigated. Volunteers from Keene State College are participating in the administration of a survey given through Google Forms. The survey includes the Maslach Burnout Inventory plus 11 additional (validated) questions to measure perceived burnout. We hypothesize that an increase of number of hours required in clinical experience will increase burnout for undergraduates. The study is approved by the Institutional Review Board and data collection is ongoing.
