Every student athlete deserves his or her best season, every season.
The certified athletic trainers (AT staff) for Daviess Community Hospital work at 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 trainers also assist with patient care in our rehab therapies and chiropractic departments.
Certified athletic trainers are health care professionals who specialize in preventing, recognizing, managing and rehabilitating injuries that result from physical activity. As part of a complete health care team, the certified athletic trainer works under the direction of a licensed physician and in cooperation with other health care professionals, athletics administrators, coaches, and parents.
To become certified, athletic training students must graduate with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited athletic training program and pass a comprehensive test administered by the Board of Certification (BOC). All of the athletic trainers employed at Daviess Community Hospital are certified by the NATABOC, the national credentialing association for certified athletic trainers. Athletic trainers must meet ongoing continuing education standards in order to remain certified. Every two years, athletic trainers must complete 50 hours of continuing education credits.
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.
