MISSION STATEMENT

The University of Houston Sports Medicine Department's primary mission is to commit our department to providing the highest quality of health care and medical coverage for all injuries and illnesses to all student-athletes regardless of sport, gender, or ability level. Our secondary mission will enhance the primary mission by providing clinical education, mentorship and development of student athletic trainers into productive members of all health related professions and society. This mission will assist the overall mission of the entire University of Houston Athletic Department.

The primary goal of the sports medicine staff is to protect and return the injured student-athlete to sport participation as quickly and safely as possible. The athletic trainer possesses knowledge in injury prevention, injury recognition, injury evaluation and assessment and the treatment, rehabilitation and reconditioning of all athletic injuries. Our main objective is to help prevent athletic related injuries from occurring. Recognizing that some injuries are inevitable, our staff is available to render first aid, provide follow-up treatment and rehabilitation, and counsel student-athletes and their families on available treatment options. The staff maintains current in knowledge and skill through participation in regular in-services and attendance at education conferences annually.

CONDUCT: PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL QUALITIES

Due to the clinical nature of the staff and student athletic trainer's positions, it is expected that all staff and students will conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner. Unprofessional and unethical behavior will not be tolerated and will be dealt with by the administrative staff. Anyone who engages in unprofessional or unethical behavior may be dismissed from the program.
