Welcome to the online home of the
Delaware State University Sports Medicine Department!

Sports Med

The Delaware State University Sports Medicine Department's primary objective is to provide the highest quality of care to our student-athletes. We accomplish this through education, risk management and prevention of athletic injury. Secondly, we provide clinical evaluation, diagnosis and referrals. Finally, with effective immediate care, treatment, rehabilitation, and reconditioning of injuries, we ensure proper recovery and return to play.

Our Sports Medicine staff strives to ensure that our student-athletes are provided with proper direction and counseling in all areas of physical, emotional and mental well-being.

The team physicians have appointment times Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and our orthopedic surgeon has weekly office hours on Wednesday evenings.  All appointments can be scheduled through the Sports Medicine Department and Athletic Training Staff.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you further.
