Athletic Trainer

Athletic trainers, also known as ATs, specialize in the management, prevention, and recovery of injured athletes. Many times, athletic trainers are the first medical professionals on the scene after an injury. Athletic trainers collaborate with doctors to provide emergency and follow-up care and develop injury prevention and treatment programs for injured athletes.

Athletic trainers also provide a vital communication link between the injured athlete, the physician, the coach, and sometimes the athlete's family to determine when it's right to return to practice and competition.

The certified athletic trainers for Daviess Community Hospital work at local schools and sporting events around the region, providing preventive and injury care for athletes and peace of mind for parents, coaches, and administrators. Our athletic training program assists injured athletes with their medical journey from on-the-field treatment to care with a physician, or other healthcare provider at Daviess Community Hospital. We can customize all of our programs to meet the needs of your athletic department.

We are the provider for athletic training services at: Pike Central Middle/High School, Barr-Reeve Community Schools, Washing Community Schools, and Vincennes University.
