Supporting UVa-Wise Sports Medicine

The Athletic Trainers at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise are responsible for the athletic_logodelivery of quality health care to all student-athletes participating in UVa-Wise athletic events. Services provided include prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illness sustained as a direct result of participating in practices and or games. It is the goal of the athletic training staff to administer its responsibilities with professional skills and compassionate care.

Student-athletes receive a thorough assessment of possible injury by the athletic training staff.  Trainers develop a plan of care, which is coordinated by the physicians and/or athletic trainer and meets the student-athlete’s needs. The student-athlete is informed about his/her plan of care and will be involved in achieving his/her recovery of function returning to full health and activities. The athletic training staff provides an opportunity for educating the student-athlete about healthy lifestyle choices.

The Sports Medicine team staff three on-campus training facilities including Greear Gymnasium, Humphreys-Thomas Field House and the David J. Prior Convocation Center. This allows the trainers to support practices and competitions for all athletic teams. In addition, they travel with the teams as well.

The Sports Medicine department appreciates your consideration of a gift which will be used for their greatest need which may include supplies, equipment, educational materials and training resources.

We would like to thank our supporters for contributions to our sports medicine program. Your donations helps us to keep our student-athletes healthy and competing at their highest level of performance.
