Welcome to Sports Medicine
I'm excited to have you in class this year for Sports Medicine. I am looking forward to an exciting semester, and hope you leave this class with not only an understanding of this growing health-care field but more importantly with the skills necessary for success in any career field. Throughout the semester, we will emphasize employability skills such as communication, dependability, ethical decision-making, employment & healthcare law, responsibility, integrity, organizational and time management, using the content area of Sports Medicine as our backdrop.
My top priority will always be to foster your success, however, your success is ultimately up to you. The most common pattern among students who are unsuccessful is simply a failure to complete their work or to meet classroom expectations. I hope you will stay actively engaged in your education, and I am here to support you throughout the semester!
