The sports medicine team of certified athletic trainers and team physicians is committed to providing the most comprehensive and safest health care possible. Evaluations, treatments, and rehabilitation are established for each individual, taking into consideration the sport in which the athlete participates. The primary goal of The Catholic University of America sports medicine department is to return the athletes to their status before injury in the safest and quickest manner possible.
The athletic training staff is composed of four certified athletic trainers. Responsibilities include covering practice and competition as well as traveling with the team as deemed appropriate. Specifically, the athletic trainers are responsible for evaluating athletic injuries, administering first aid and injury care, making medical referrals, and establishing treatments and rehabilitation protocols. The staff also spends a significant amount of time in the education of student-athletes with respect to injury prevention, nutrition and psychological support in dealing with injuries.
