Introduction:

All student-athletes are entitled to the state-of-the-art care that can be provided while here at Temple University. The Sports Medicine Team and the Team Physician collaborate in order to coordinate, provide and deliver the appropriate preventative services, rehabilitative services, and treatment options to each student-athlete in a professional setting.

The NCAA, affiliated conferences and the University have specific guidelines that must be followed by the Athletics Department, team physicians, athletic trainers, coaches, and student-athletes.

It is the goal of the Sports Medicine Team to keep each student-athlete safe, healthy, and injury-free. In the event of an injury or illness, the Sports Medicine Team will provide quality medical care that enables the student-athlete to return to full participation in not only the sports world but also the classroom.

Mission Statement:

As a highly motivated team of professionals, we strive to provide an excellent standard of care to all our Temple student-athletes, who compete at the highest level of intercollegiate athletic competition, and in doing so aid in developing outstanding leadership experiences for our Temple Owls. Through sound medical and rehabilitative principles, excellent care, and proper consideration given to both the personal and team goals of each student-athlete, this goal can be achieved.

Role and Responsibility of the Athletic Trainer (ATC):

The Certified Athletic Trainer is an allied healthcare professional who is specifically educated and trained to care for the student-athlete. While possessing a college/university degree, he/she must pass a national certification examination, obtain proper state licensure and remain current and up to date with all continuing education units. There are currently six domains found in the athletic training profession as defined by the National Athletic Training Association and the Board of Certification. The domains are as follows:

A. Prevention of Athletic Injuries
B. Recognition, evaluation, and assessment of athletic injuries
C. Immediate care for athletic injuries
D. Rehabilitation, treatment, and reconditioning of athletic injuries
E. Organization and administration of athletic training programs
F. Professional development and responsibility

All Temple University staff athletic trainers are nationally certified and state licensed.
