Vision

The Point University Sports Medicine Department seeks to provide all university-sponsored athletic teams with comprehensive, high quality athletic training resources.  We aim to treat athletes with a holistic view, focusing on all levels including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of an injury.  The Sports Medicine Department is continuously working towards staying up to date in evidence base studies, and practicing within new, updated and modern care.  We will work towards providing time efficient rehabilitation for each athlete we work with.  The focus of the department is on strengthening the relationships with our community, physicians and collegiate competitors.  Point University's Sports Medicine Department aspires to be the leader in athletic training within the NAIA division.

 

Mission

The Point University's Sports Medicine Department's primary mission is to provide quality athletic training services to all the university-sponsored athletic teams.  These services include prevention, evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation and management of injuries and/or illnesses.  We are also committed to providing athletes with the tools that they need to grow spiritually, athletically, academically, and professionally.

The purpose of our department is to:

  • Promote excellence in a Christian environment
  • Reduce the risk of injury
  • Assure that efficient and safe emergency procedures are in place
  • Allow easy access to sports medicine services
  • Provide immediate first response to athletic related medical emergencies
  • Encourage healthy lifestyle behaviors
  • Enable our student-athletes to return to participation quickly and safely
  • Educate athletes and coaches on proper techniques in strengthening and flexibility

We are committed to providing the highest standard of care for our student-athletes.  In addition, we stand behind the values and beliefs of Point University, the National Athletic Trainers' Association Code of Professional Practice, and the regulations set forth by the State of Georgia.
