UC Davis' Athletic Training Program is charged with the responsibility for the care and prevention of athletic injuries incurred by the intercollegiate student-athlete. This includes evaluation, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, providing protective equipment/supplies, assisting with nutritional and psychological concerns, serving as a site facilitator for the NCAA Drug Testing Program and liaison position with medical personnel, and maintaining appropriate medical records.
A secondary mission is to provide a learning environment for student athletic trainers and sports medicine fellows. The Athletic Training Program is dedicated to teaching student athletic trainers the fundamental skills of athletic training and rehabilitation through an intensive clinical environment, formal lecture, discussion and coursework.
The success of this program is largely due to the effectiveness of a team of highly skilled and exceptionally qualified individuals: a core group of Certified Athletic Trainers, approximately 32 student interns, a physical therapist, and a team of eight physicians, representing all areas of sports medicine specialties from primary care to orthopedics. Together, this program is responsible for the health and well being of over 700 student-athletes in 23 intercollegiate athletic teams.
