Sports Medicine offers an overview of injury prevention, injury recognition and evaluation, assessment tests and treatment, and rehabilitation techniques for common athletic injuries. Students will focus on human anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology, and athletic training. Students will also have the opportunity to gain practical application of techniques learned in the classroom such as assessing vital signs, splinting, controlling bleeding, as well as taping and wrapping.
Note: Sports Medicine I and II are offered in alternating years. Students may take these courses in either order. Students may elect Sports Medicine for either Physical Education or Science credit.
