Welcome!

Welcome to the Plymouth State University Athletic Training Services website. It is our goal to provide the student-athletes attending Plymouth State events the highest standard of care possible, both on the field and in our Athletic Training Clinic.

Mission Statement

The Department of Sports Medicine at Plymouth State University is a collaborative team comprised of certified athletic trainers, physicians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to providing the highest quality care to the student-athletes at Plymouth State University. Our mission is to provide medical coverage to all intercollegiate athletic programs, which includes injury prevention, education, injury treatment and rehabilitation. The certified athletic trainers, working under the direction of the Plymouth State University team physician, recognize that our responsibility is to ensure the health and long-term well-being of the student-athletes and that making sound clinical decisions for return to play following injury is paramount.

Sports Medicine Team

The athletic training staff is comprised of four full-time certified athletic trainers and three graduate assistant certified athletic trainers working in conjunction with our team physicians and consulting physicians, as well as physical therapists and other healthcare professionals. All Plymouth State University athletic trainers are licensed in the state of New Hampshire and are members of the National Athletic Trainers' Association.

What is Athletic Training?

Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions. Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA), Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an allied health care profession. Athletic trainers are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes.

ATEP:

Plymouth State University offers a 3+2 program that leads to a Bachelor of Science in Allied Health Sciences and a Master of Science in Athletic Training. The 3+2 program will provide qualified students with an opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful healthcare provider as a Certified Athletic Trainer.

We offer two pathways to earn the Master of Science degree in Athletic Training.  Students may apply to the 3+2 program (click here) which will allow qualified students to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Allied Health Sciences and if they meet requirements, enter into the MS degree Professional Program in Athletic Training after their third year as an undergraduate student. This allows students to complete both the  Bachelor’s and Master’s in 5 years.

The second pathway is for those who have already earned a Bachelor’s degree and wish to complete a two-year Master’s degree. Students who already possess a Bachelor’s degree click here.

 

The Plymouth State University Department of Athletics, in conjunction with Athletic Training Services, requires that all prospective or current student-athletes complete health information, consent and emergency contact information forms prior to each academic year. These forms are protected by medical and personal confidentiality guidelines under the Family and Educational Right to Privacy Act (Buckley Amendment) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). Information contained in these forms will be used by the athletic training staff and/or team physician(s) to provide the best possible healthcare for student-athletes during their participation in the athletic program at Plymouth State University. This information will not be shared with any other individuals or entites without the express written permission of the individual student-athlete.
