NC State Sports Medicine
The NC State Sports Medicine Department strives to provide the highest quality comprehensive healthcare to student-athletes at NC State. The primary focus of the department is to protect the health and well-being of the student-athlete by minimizing extrinsic risks.
Few programs play a role as essential to the continued success of NC State athletics as Sports Medicine. The NC State athletic training rooms are staffed by an experienced team of professionals under the direction of Robert Murphy, Director of Sports Medicine. The staff consists of 18 certified athletic trainers. This highly trained group provides injury recognition, acute injury management, injury rehabilitation, and injury prevention. Athletic trainers at NC State develop relationships with student-athletes and possess a detailed knowledge of student-athletes' medical backgrounds before any medical or injury issues occur. This unique situation provides for an efficient and expedient flow of medical care to our student-athletes if an issue were to occur.
