The Athletic Training Department at UDC strives to provide injury preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions to all student-athletes. The Athletic Training Department at UDC is committed to professional, quality care and an ongoing effort to provide the latest and most effective treatments for athletic injuries. The Athletic Training Department at UDC provides all student-athletes with the highest quality medical care. The top priority of the Athletic Training Department is the health and safety of the student-athlete.

 

APPOINTMENTS

Student-athletes have thirty (30) minutes after their practice to report any injuries sustained during practice to the athletic trainer and receive treatment.   If student-athletes report during the thirty minutes and do not have sufficient time for rehabilitation services, or if student-athlete does not report post practice, student-athletes must make an appointment for treatment and rehabilitation services. It is the student-athlete’s responsibility to inform the athletic trainer if they are going to be more than ten (10) minutes late for their appointment.  The athletic trainer may cancel the appointment if the student-athlete’s lateness will affect other treatments or practice preparation.  Lack of communication will also result in cancellation of appointment with the athletic trainer. When an appointment is cancelled, the student-athlete will not undergo treatment for the day and will need to reschedule.
