It is the vision of the University of Tennessee Sports Medicine Department to provide the student-athletes of The University of Tennessee with the highest quality health care system available. We will strive to stay on the leading edge of knowledge and practices providing the most aggressive yet safe approaches to athlete health care.
The University of Tennessee Sports Medicine Department delivers traditional athletic training and sports medicine services to the student-athletes of The University of Tennessee. The services provided to the student-athlete can be divided into four areas:
1. Prevention of athletic injuries.
Our goal is to provide the student athletes at UT with the best health care possible. In providing these services, the UT Sports Medicine staff strives to utilize the most efficient, proven and current technologies, including the best equipment available. Consistent with this goal, we aim to offer a health care system that is proactive in approach, reducing the risk of athletic injury for our student athletes; provide easily accessible sports medicine services that are responsive to the needs of the student-athlete; and facilitate injured student-athletes' safe return to participation in athletic competition as soon as possible.
Our philosophy is that the needs of the student athlete will always be the first consideration for all members of the sports medicine staff. The University of Tennessee Sports Medicine Department strives to be a program of recognized excellence in sports medicine. We will comply with the recommendations and guidelines as established by the NCAA Sports Medicine Committee, the Southeastern Conference, and the National Athletic Trainers' Association.
