Student Handbook - Confidentiality
Statement of Confidentiality
“What is said here, what is heard here, what is seen here, stays here.”
All University of Maine athletic training students must adhere to the following Confidentiality Statement. This is in effect for each ATS while he/she is enrolled as a student of the KPE Department in the Athletic Training Option.
As an allied health professional, it is the law that you withhold any information which you acquire either professionally or socially that is considered “professionally confidential”. This includes any information you hear in athletic training rooms, physicians’ offices, locker rooms, or other. Information regarding an athlete’s medical condition, treatment of this medical condition, or any other patient information that is not considered public information is not to be discussed with anyone other than your immediate supervisor.
Please adhere to this policy as a breach of confidentiality will lead to dismissal from any clinical educational opportunities. This is all part of professionalism. It begins now.
