Athletic Training

If you're experiencing a medical emergency on campus, call Campus Police 336-770-3362.

The UNCSA Athletic Training staff is comprised of three licensed athletic trainers, one of whom is also a licensed physical therapist. Athletic trainers (ATs) work collaboratively with physicians to support student-artist health and performance by helping to identify, treat, and prevent injuries and other musculoskeletal conditions. Our athletic trainers are nationally certified by the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC) and are licensed by the North Carolina Board of Athletic Trainer Examiners (NCBATE).

How to make an appointment

The Athletic Training staff is available to meet with current students both in the clinic and via telehealth using Zoom for Healthcare. To schedule an in-person visit (including same-day visits for acute injury), please call 336-770-3288. Call for telehealth visits, also, or go to your Student Health Portal to select your provider and time (Select appointment reason "ATTeleH").

Student Health Portal

Have an injury question?

If you have a quick question or aren't sure whether you need an appointment for your particular physical complaint, you can send any of the licensed athletic trainers a secure message through your Student Health Portal and receive a reply in 1-2 business days. Please call the Health Services desk with any more immediate concerns.

Athletic Training services

We are well acquainted with the unique demands of conservatory life and dedicated to serving our dynamic population with the same passion each student brings to his or her studies. We work with each individual to determine goals for treatment and to create a plan for a safe and successful return to activity. This process often includes eliciting parental input and support, which can be especially important when students are far from home.

We also collaborate with faculty members when appropriate to ensure a comprehensive approach to injury management and prevention. And, of course, we enjoy working with other healthcare professionals both on campus and out in the community to provide the best care for our students.

Athletic Training Student Opportunities

The University of North Carolina School of the Arts welcomes athletic training students with interest and enthusiasm to work in the performing arts. We encourage students to contact us for observation experiences and to apply for internships.
