The University of the Virgin Islands’ Athletic Training and Sports Medicine personnel is committed to delivering the highest quality of health care services to our student athletes. Here at UVI we consider an athlete to be any student participating in a UVI athletic department sponsored athletic activity. Our mission is to promote and maintain the health and welfare of all UVI athletes. However, the accomplishments of this program does not end with the care of UVI athletes, the athletic training and sports medicine program also doubles as a learning facility which provides many UVI students, who wish to pursue a future in athletic training/ sports medicine, with an early start within their field of interest.
