I. COURSE DESCRIPTION
Sports Medicine will cover the anatomical and physiological affects of injuries to the human body.
Laboratory activities include the function and identification of bone, muscle, ligament, tendon, vascular
and neurological involvement. How the use of hot and cold modalities physiologically affect the natural
healing process. Multiple laboratory activities are included to further aid in the learning process.
II. COURSE GOALS AND/OR MAJOR STUDENT OUTCOMES
Students need to:
Understand the anatomy and physiology of the human body to enhance learning of sports
medicine.
Understand orthopedic injuries, especially related to sports.
Understand and apply the steps of the scientific method, including data analysis.
Gain knowledge of medical careers and develop motivation to pursue a career in medicine.

Absences:
Students will have a difficult time in this class if they miss labs and other group assignments. Students
will have one full day to make up work for each day they have missed. It is the students responsibility
to get the missed work and assignments. Please refer to my website to see what you have missed and the
Google calendar to keep current with the class. Students will need to come in on their own time (not in
the middle of class) to get help or to see what they have missed.
