Nevada Sports Medicine At-A-Glance

The University of Nevada athletic trainers and medical staff play a major role in maintaining the health and physical well-being of all Nevada student athletes. The staff is committed to the prevention, evaluation, care and rehabilitation of injuries while working with personnel in physical therapy, strength and conditioning and nutrition.
The Sports Medicine department is part of the E.L. Cord Academic and Athletic Performance Center on the Nevada campus. This facility houses the Wolf Pack athletic training staff which consists of five full-time certified athletic trainers (ATCs), three graduate assistant athletic trainers and a number of student athletic trainers.

The athletic training facility is a state of the art 5,175 square foot facility. The athletic trainers have access to some of the best technology available with a half-million dollar aquatic therapy room with two in ground plunge pools and a multi-depth therapy and exercise pool capable of accommodating multiple athletes at the same time while working on separate rehabilitation programs. The facility also boasts a separate functional rehabilitation area, ice/wet room and storage facilities.
