Sports Medicine

Mission statement

The Missouri S&T Sports Medicine Program seeks to provide cutting-edge healthcare that is organized, professional, and efficient as to ensure that our student-athletes can maintain a high quality of life and continue to achieve academic success.

 

About MISSOURI S&T sports medicine

The Missouri S&T sports medicine team consists of 5 full time athletic trainers, an in-house team doctor, an orthopedic nurse, an insurance coordinator, and works with 2 orthopedic surgeons that are employed by Phelps County Regional Medical Center.  Our sports medicine team works under student health services, instead of athletics like most other schools.  This allows for us to work closer with a medical team and helps us to be recognized as health care professionals.

We have 3 athletic training rooms that we utilize.  The Kaczmarek Sports Medicine Facility is in the Student Health Complex and is primarily used for rehabilitation. The athletic training room in the Gale Bullman multipurpose building is used for pre and post practice treatments. Finally, we have an athletic training room located in the football fieldhouse which is used for all football pre and post practice treatments as well as track meets.  

 

Hours of Operation

Monday through Friday, 9:00AM-2:00PM at Kaczmareck Sports Medicine Facility.  Also available by appointment outside regular buisness hours.  Athletic Trainers will be available 1 hour before scheduled practices and 30 minutes after at the Gale Bullman Multipurpose Building Athletic Training room.

New Student Athletes

Click here to complete forms on patient portal.

Our physical process is very thorough and will be scheduled by your coach and athletic trainer. Before we do your physical we need all athletes to fill out the forms that are posted on their student portal.  If you have had any surgery or fractures in the last 5 years we need the records before you arrive for your physical.  During the physical process you will have a regular physical exam, an orthopedic screening, an EKG, an ImPACT test, and a sickle cell test if you have not already had one.  It takes 2 days to get the results back from the sickle cell test and you cannot participate until then, so please have this done before you get to campus. If you have any questions please contact your athletic trainer.

Returning Student Athletes

At the start of every year we need all athletes to submit a copy of their most recent insurance card.  You can email a copy to your athletic trainer and/or put it on ACS.

Also, please notify your athletic trainer if you have changed the dosage of any medications you are taking or started taking a new medication.
