Research has identified that learning in the clinical education setting can be reciprocal between preceptors and athletic training students. However, the frequency of and the potential benefits to reciprocal learning are not fully understood. The purpose of the current study was to explore the frequency and perceived value of reciprocal learning in clinical education from both the athletic training student and preceptor perspective. Reciprocal learning was identified by preceptors and athletic training students as occurring frequently during clinical education. Preceptors and athletic training students valued the opportunity to learn from one another.
