On behalf of the athletic training staff, we are excited about the upcoming academic year and athletic season. We look forward to working with you. Our staff is committed to maintaining and improving the health and athletic performance our student-athletes.
As part of the athletic department, and under the direction of the team physician, the athletic training staff provides high quality medical care for all student-athletes. Athletic training is an allied health profession recognized by the American Medical Association. All full time staff and graduate assistant athletic trainers are responsible for the evaluation, management, rehabilitation and treatment of injuries/illnesses that may occur during participation in athletic endeavors. The prevention of these injuries/illnesses, where possible, is of utmost concern. The athletic training staff works in conjunction with team physicians, the Health Center staff, surrounding medical facilities, Valparaiso University Athletic Department staff and the student-athletes to carry out these tasks.
As an integral part of our preventative efforts, we ask that you read and complete the paperwork found in this packet.
