Athletic Training is the prevention, evaluation, treatment, management and rehabilitation of athletic related injuries and illnesses by a BOC (Board of Certification) certified health care professional. The Recreation and Wellness Center offers free athletic training services to students.
An athletic trainer is directly responsible for all phases of healthcare in an athletic environment. It includes prevention, first aid, injury evaluation, and management of athletic injuries. RWC athletic trainers can also design and supervise a short-term rehabilitation program that can facilitate safe and expeditious return-to-play (or return-to-learn) for an athlete.
If you are interested in meeting with an athletic trainer during open clinic hours, all you need to do is come to the RWC Athletic Training Room (1st floor) during Open Clinic Hours
During open clinic hours, UCF students are welcome to meet one-on-one with an athletic trainer to have an injury evaluated. Should the injury require rehabilitation, the athletic trainer will prescribe a home exercise program for the student. These programs will be customized for each individual’s needs, and may consist of range of motion exercises and or resistance band exercises.
If a Certified Athletic Trainer advises a participant to see a physician based on their injury, the participant will not be allowed to return to activity until they have provided written clearance from a physician. The athletic training staff refers students with certain injuries to our two partners UCF Student Health Services and UCF Health. For more information click on the links below.
