Sports Medicine

mainSportsMed1

Sports Medicine is designed for students interested in fields such as athletic training, physical therapy, fitness, physiology of exercise, kinesiology, nutrition, and other sports medicine related fields.

Students’ course of study includes an overview of the measures for the prevention, management, and rehabilitation of athletic related injuries. Students will study basic anatomy as it applies to athletic injuries, protective equipment, taping and bracing to protect the injured area, and different theories of evaluation and rehabilitation techniques as they apply to athletic injuries.

Problems such as nutrition, physical examination, wound care, environmental conditions, therapeutic modalities, first aid/CPR, and emergency procedures will be taught. During senior year, students will have the opportunity to complete an internship at a site associated with their career choice.
