Pre-Participation Evaluation (must be within 6 months before your first day of practice)

The Clark University Sports Medicine staff is responsible for the evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of all athletic injuries incurred by the student-athletes in our 17 intercollegiate programs. The staff includes two full-time certified athletic trainers and 6-8 student aides.

The Clark University Sports Medicine Office is affiliated with physicians and other healthcare providers from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center Sports Medicine Department, one of the most highly regarded medical facilities in New England.

Clark’s affiliation with UMass provides our student-athletes with access to a variety of services, including orthopedic specialists.

The primary goal of the sports medicine staff is to ensure that the health, safety, and welfare of our student-athletes are of the highest quality. The staff is committed to doing everything possible to return injured student-athletes to practice/competition as soon as possible and to prevent further injuries.

Athletic Trainer Coverage

An Athletic Trainer is available at all home contests involving Clark University student-athletes.

Please call in advance if your team will be traveling without an AT. We will be happy to help with pre-game taping, but require a note or phone call with specific requests; treatment will be limited to heat and ice.

If an AT is traveling then they will be able to use modalities such as hydrocollator packs, whirlpools, ultrasound and electric stimulation.

During home contests, water and ice will be provided and an AED and splint kit will be available.

Crutches will be loaned to injured visiting student-athletes on an as need basis.

Generally, an AT does not travel with our teams with the exception of post season and tournament play. Please note that each team's emergency medical information can be found in the medical kit provided.
