The University of Bridgeport Athletic Training Staff has assembled a large, diverse group of physicians and medical practitioners to address the needs of the student-athletes. This is accomplished by utilizing UB's College of Chiropractic, College of Naturopathy and College of Acupuncture in conjunction with physicians and surgeons from the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center (OSM). This approach to sports medicine provides the Athletic Trainers at UB the multi-disciplinary approach required to treat a diverse population of student-athletes and their individual injuries.
In addition to providing high quality care to the student-athletes, the sports medicine staff provides clinical education experience for Quinnipiac University and Sacred Heart University athletic training students. As competent preceptors they oversee and provide advanced sports medicine instruction in the Athletic Training Room and on the field/court. This gives the athletic training students experience providing treatment and therapy, on and off-field assessments and emergency evaluations, all of which are vital aspects of being an Athletic Trainer.
