Sports Medicine


Our Goal

The Sports Medicine Academy is open to 9th, 10th and 11th grade students who are interested in medicine and patient care for the athletic and active population. We strive to educate students to be the healthcare providers of the future by preparing them to pursue advanced degrees and/or their passion in a career after graduation. SMA 10th graders are eligible to join the Sports Medicine Team which offers on campus experience in caring for the student athlete.
