UTSA Athletic Medicine
The UTSA Athletic Medicine Department is committed to providing the highest standard of sports medicine care to all Roadrunners student-athletes. This includes education, prevention, evaluation, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses associated with athletics participation. Referral necessary for additional medical and psychological evaluation and treatment is also provided. The athletic medicine staff is dedicated to this mission and compliance with UTSA, Western Athletic Conference and NCAA rules and regulations.
The UTSA athletic medicine staff works under the direction of Associate Athletics Director for Athletic Medicine, Jerry Greeson. All of the physicians that work with the training staff come from the University of Texas Health Science Center Medical School and those physicians, along with selected non-physicians, compose the sports medicine team.
The athletic medicine staff is responsible for the care, prevention and rehabilitation of athletics injuries, taping and wrapping procedures, emergency situations should they occur, attendance of practices and home and away events that occur to 17 intercollegiate sports. UTSA student-athletes receive care from a centralized training center which has state-of-the-art therapeutic modalities and rehabilitation equipment to give student-athletes the best care available.
UTSA student athletic trainers have the opportunity to work with other athletics-related activities, including professional hockey, baseball and rodeo, high school football and exposure in sports medicine rehabilitation clinics.
