Fayetteville State University
The health and well-being of the student-athletes at Fayetteville State University is of utmost importance to the Athletics Department and the institution itself.
FSU employs a staff of certified athletic trainers nationally certified through the Board of Certification (ATC credential) and licensed through the North Carolina Board of Athletic Trainer Examiners (LAT credential).
These certified athletic trainers are responsible for the prevention, evaluation, immediate care, rehabilitation, and reconditioning of all athletic injuries incurred by FSU's student-athletes, as well as several other administrative duties such as medical record keeping and facilitating the insurance claims process.
The members of the Sports Medicine team also serve as liaisons among intercollegiate coaches, student-athletes and their families, team physicians and Athletics Department administration to coordinate the best overall healthcare possible for all the university's student-athletes.
FSU and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) both recognize the importance of maintaining a drug-free sporting environment, not only for the purity of competition but for the health and safety of the student-athletes. To help achieve this goal, FSU's Sports Medicine department regularly conducts randomized drug-screening of the student-athletes.
The Sports Medicine team at FSU embodies the Bronco Spirit by working tirelessly through all the athletic seasons and by making a commitment of service to the care of FSU's student-athletes. It is that spirit which drives FSU's sports medicine team to be one of the best in the region.
