Emerson College Sports Medicine Mission Statement
Emerson College Sports Medicine is comprised of two full time certified athletic trainers, one part time graduate assistant certified athletic trainer, and a team physician from Boston Medical Center Family Medicine Department. As a staff, we will coordinate expert health care services for the 14 varsity sports teams at Emerson College.
Emerson College Sports Medicine will create a comfortable caring environment within the facility by assuring that each staff member maintains a pleasant, caring, and professional attitude. We will respect the dignity of each individual student-athlete and recognize the differences in gender, race, and cultural background. We strive to provide a positive healthy recovery experience, an improved quality of life and a safe return to full athletic participation. The staff will be cognizant of the “total athlete” including the student-athlete’s emotional, mental and physical well-being.
As a staff, our main priority is the health and safety of the student-athlete and therefore we will strive to return the student-athlete to activity in the shortest, but safest amount of time possible. We will achieve this through prevention, recognition, evaluation, immediate care, patient education, rehabilitation/reconditioning of athletic injuries, and health care administration/ professional development.
