Sports Medicine

The primary objectives of the Ohio University Sports Medicine Team are the prevention of athletic injury and safe return for the competitive student-athlete. The comprehensive staff of experienced professionals is dedicated to providing a healthy environment for athletic competition. 

Ohio University's athletic training program has been one of the most successful of its kind. The third-oldest curriculum program in the country has produced nearly 350 alumni. Many have demonstrated excellence in their careers working with teams including the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears, MLB's Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs, the USOC and universities in nearly every major conference in the country. 

The health care team works with specific professional organizations like the NCAA Medical Safeguards Committee, the National Athletic Trainers Association and the American College of Sports Medicine. Current broad-based endeavors include use of neuropsychological testing for treatment of concussions, managing and evaluating injury patterns and statistics, eating-disorder recognition and counseling for nutritional supplements.
