The VCU Sports Medicine Staff is responsible for the primary health care of all varsity student-athletes in conjunction with the University’s Student Health Services.

The main functions of VCU Sports Medicine are to provide pre-participation clearance for all students who intend to be involved in varsity athletics, as well as the care, prevention, and rehabilitation of all athletic injuries/illnesses that occur while representing VCU in intercollegiate athletics.

The VCU Sports Medicine Staff will make all necessary referrals to physicians and/or hospitals for examination/testing on a timely basis to insure the well-being of all student-athletes and to promote a safe and complete return to their respective sport.

INCOMING STUDENT-ATHLETE FORMS

It is imperative that first-time student athletes submit all the above information prior to the start of practice to the address/fax number provided to the right.

All incoming student-athletes are required to have the VCU Evaluation for Participation in Varsity Sports physical form completed by the student-athlete’s family/personal physician and sickle cell trait test results or a signed waiver prior to arriving on campus.

A VCU Sports Medicine Physician and/or Certified Athletic Trainer’s review of the student-athlete’s medical record will constitute the approval for athletic participation clearance. Where the student-athlete’s health history warrants, the individual may be required to be further evaluated by a physician from the VCU Sports Medicine Center or the appropriate specialist before medical clearance is granted.
