Sports Medicine Mission Statement

The mission of the Tiffin University Sports Medicine program is to provide high quality medical care to Tiffin University student-athletes through prevention, assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and education of athletic injuries and illnesses. Providing medical care and treatment to more than 900 student athletes representing 23 varsity sports and cheerleaders, our Sports Medicine Team consists of multiple allied health care professionals including Certified Athletic Trainers, Certified Nurse Practitioners, and Orthopedic Specialists. The 7 Staff Athletic Trainers are all NATABOC Certified, hold State of Ohio Licensure, and have additional CPR Professional Rescuer certifications by the American Red Cross or American Heart Association.

The primary goal of the Sports Medicine Department is to provide the best quality care to each and every student-athlete.  Our highly qualified staff is trained to provide quick, accurate evaluations and expertise with the aid of excellent facilities and resources. Injured student-athletes return to participation only when they are able to function on the field of play. The ability to function in the arena, on the court, field or in the pool comes after thorough treatment and rehabilitation.

With the addition of the Heminger Center and continuing improvements to the Hanson Athletic Training Room, the Sports Medicine staff utilizes a variety of equipment and resources to hand-tailor a plan of care for each unique injury and student-athlete.  The equipment used attempts to simulate the same type of stress that is encountered while participating in a sport. Athletic trainers work to create an environment which is safe and yet conducive to the return of student-athletes to competition.  Our staff continues to find new and innovative treatment and rehabilitation options to bring the highest quality of care to Dragon student-athletes.
