Mission Statement
The athletic training department at Dakota Wesleyan University is dedicated to providing sports medicine services to each of the approximately 280 student-athletes participating in the Tigers’ 13 intercollegiate sports. The athletic training department is comprised of team physicians, certified staff athletic trainers and numerous athletic training students who collectively help to provide a safe environment, including prevention, treatment, evaluation and rehabilitation services to the DWU intercollegiate athletic population.

The philosophy of the athletic training staff is based on patient care, education and community service. The goal of the staff is to provide the best health care coverage to the student-athlete and to help each student-athlete reach his or her maximum potential and return from injury as safely as possible with the help of an established team of health care professionals. The athletic training department and staff are also committed to providing a learning experience and clinical instruction site for the undergraduate athletic training students enrolled in the DWU Athletic Training education program.
