The Athletic Training Program of the University of California, Davis 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, being a site facilitator for the NCAA Drug Testing Program, serving in a liaison position with medical personnel and maintaining appropriate medical records.
A secondary mission is to provide a learning environment for the student athletic trainers. The Athletic Training Program is dedicated to teaching the student athletic trainer the fundamental skills of athletic training and rehabilitation through an intensive clinical environment as well as formal lecture, discussion and course work.
The success of this program is largely due to the effectiveness of our team of highly skilled and exceptionally qualified individuals. This team is comprised of a core group of Certified Athletic Trainers, approximately thirty-two 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.
