The Tribe Athletics Sports Medicine Department is responsible for the health care of over 500 student-athletes, in 23 intercollegiate sports, at the country's second-oldest institution of higher learning. The Athletic Training Staff focuses on the prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for all intercollegiate student-athletes.
Tribe athletes have the luxury of rehabilitating and treating injuries in a state-of-the-art athletic training facility. There are eleven full-time Certified Athletic Trainers and a full-time MD that work out of the Athletic Training Facility in Kaplan Arena and Laycock Center. In addition, a group of undergraduate students serve as athletic training aides and assist in the daily operation of the Sports Medicine Department.
