UVA Sports Medicine Volunteer Program

The primary function of the University of Virginia Sports Medicine Department is to provide encompassing healthcare for our student-athletes that include prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries as well as emergency care during practice and games.
The department offers volunteer positions for students who are interested in athletic training, physical therapy, medicine, or other allied health professions.

  • Students will be scheduled for 3 clinical shifts in the athletic training room (UHall or McCue) with a minimum time requirement of 9-10 hours per week.
  • Students will attend one Sunday night in-service at beginning of the semester and a weekly educational in-service from 7:00-7:45 am on Wednesdays in the McCue Athletic Training room. Students may receive 2 credit hours for attending all of the in-services and completing the weekly competencies.
  • Students will also be required to work at least one 3-hour shift at an UVa athletic event per semester outside of their clinic shifts.
  • At the conclusion of the semester, students will be evaluated on their performance. Students that choose to continue with the sports medicine program may be eligible for a stipend and earn an assignment to work with an athletic team pending positive reviews by our staff.
  • Commit to at least one semester on the program
