Sports Medicine

 

Walsh University's Sports Medicine staff is dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate care to all student-athletes in the Department of Athletics. This is accomplished through our unique partnerships with Mercy Medical Center, Spectrum Orthopaedics, and Akron Children’s Hospital. 

Mercy Medical Center employs three full-time and two graduate assistant Athletic Trainers to Walsh University. In addition, Mercy Medical Center provides physical therapy services in house for all student-athletes. Walsh University is paired with Spectrum Orthopaedics and Akron Children’s Hospital for orthopedic and primary care physician services.

Our Sports Medicine Team will strive to provide evidence-based, individualized care to our student-athletes, while keeping their integrity within the team at Walsh University. Our highly qualified professionals are compassionate to the beliefs of the student-athlete and deliver the appropriate attention to their needs, regardless of gender, race, creed, or scholarship status. 

Should a student-athlete need additional medical care, the Athletic Trainer will assist the student-athlete/family in coordinating the proper care. If necessary, the athlete may be referred to Mercy Medical Center, Spectrum Orthopaedics, or to an outside source for further evaluation and/or treatment. The Athletic Training staff will follow all policies and procedures set forth by the university and athletics department.
