Sports Medicine is a class that teaches a little about all aspects of medicine, especially medicine surrounding the athletic community. These classes require not only classroom/academic work but also requires a certain amount of hands-on experience with sport teams here at Sterlington High School. The hands-on work, or the practical part, is a good way for any student that is interested in the medical progession to get involved. One would be able to be a part of actual injury prevention, seeing injuries happen and being a part of returning these injured athletes back to playing the sport that they love. The student will learn and become certified in CPR/AED and Basic First Aid, from the American Heart Association.
Please feel free to give me a call at the school if you need any further information about the Sports Medicine Program here at Sterlington High School.
