Sports Medicine

The primary objective of the Brandeis University Sports Medicine Staff is to provide a high quality of health care to our student-athletes. This is accomplished through risk management and prevention of athletic injury, as well as injury recognition, injury evaluation, emergency care, first aid, injury management/referral, and rehabilitation. The Brandeis Sports Medicine Staff will make every effort to ensure that the student-athletes will be provided with the proper direction and counseling in all areas of physical and mental well-being.
