The Sports Medicine course is a comprehensive survey of the basic principles of sports medicine and athletic training. Designed for those interested in professions in sports medicine such as athletic training, physical therapy, orthopedics and sports performance this course covers a variety of topics: Emergent Care, Evaluation and Treatment, Musculoskeletal Systems, Taping and Wrapping Skills, Care and Prevention, Strength Training and Nutrition.
Sports Medicine students will practice skills in the CAPS Human Performance Lab, connect with expert healthcare professionals on a regular basis and work with Blue Valley's team of Certified Athletic Trainers for observation and skill application.
Students will work on a semester-long CAPStone project where they are expected to create anything from a research project to a tangible product designed to enhance the field of sports medicine. Anything is possible in these courses because the student determines the project and what they work on.
