Wellesley College Sports Medicine supports the ongoing education of varsity student-athletes through the Wellesley College Athletics Department Mission with a commitment and service to the student athlete's physical, emotional, and mental well‐being.

The Wellesley College Sports Medicine Department strives to provide quality healthcare services to all student‐athletes in the intercollegiate athletic program at Wellesley College. The certified athletic trainers work closely with the team physician, Health Service, and other associated medical personnel to provide consistency and continuity of care to each student‐athlete. Certified athletic trainers are responsible for prevention of injuries, evaluation and disposition of injuries, first aid and emergency care, as well as designing rehabilitation programs for student‐athletes. Our ultimate goal is to properly manage injuries in order to ensure a healthy, safe, and expedient return to pre‐injury function and participation.

 

Hours of Operation:

Normal hours of operation are between 12:00 PM and 7:00 PM Monday-Friday or until 30 minutes after the last sport has finished practice or competition (if after 7:00 PM). Athletic training room hours may vary to accommodate practicing teams at the discretion of the sports medicine staff. Weekend hours are per in-season coverage only. The athletic training room may have reduced hours and staffing during reading period, final exams, and holidays/school break.
