Sports Medicine I & II
Of all the professions in the sports medicine team, none is more closely involved with the athlete than the athletic trainer.
The athletic trainer is an individual who deals with the athlete from the time of the initial injury, throughout a period of rehabilitation, until the athlete is able to return to practice or competition. The athletic trainer is most directly responsible for health care in an athletic environment, which includes preventing injuries, providing initial first aid and injury management, evaluating injuries, and designing and supervising an effective program of rehabilitation that ensure a safe and quick return of the athlete to his/her activity.
