The athletic training staff will work in conjunction with the clinical staff at Dartmouth College Health Services and the Orthopedic Sports Medicine physicians at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

Our goal is to effectively manage each athlete’s injury or illness so that they may safely return to physical activity with minimal time lost from their participation in sport.

We will strive to create a professional, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere in each of our athletic training facilities. We will maintain each of our athletic training facilities with the highest commitment to efficiency and cleanliness so that an appropriate healing environment is provided. We are committed to providing the most up-to-date treatment modalities, rehabilitation equipment possible.

Our staff is committed to maintaining the highest professional standards of quality consistent with the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. We are constantly engaged with continuing education activities in order to keep abreast of the most current information available regarding treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.
