Undergraduate Student Volunteer Program
The primary function of the University of Virginia Sports Medicine Department is to provide encompassing healthcare for our student-athletes that include prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries as well as emergency care during practice and games.
Although the University of Virginia does not offer an undergraduate degree program in athletic training, student volunteers are a very important part of the sports medicine department.
We offer volunteer positions for students who are interested in athletic training, physical therapy, medicine, or other allied health professions.
There will be an informational meeting at the end of the fall semester and at the end of the spring semester for students interested in becoming a student volunteer. Rising first year students interested in the program for the fall semester should call the athletic training room at (434)243-2423 to speak with Shelley Blakey prior to August 1st.Students that volunteer are expected to commit for the entire semester.

Student Volunteer Commitment
Students will be scheduled for 3 clinical shifts in the athletic training room (UHall or McCue) with a minimum time requirement of 9-10 hours per week.
Students will attend one Sunday night in-service at beginning of the semester and a weekly educational in-service from 7:00-7:45 am on Wednesdays in the McCue Athletic Training room. Students may receive 2 credit hours for attending all of the in-services and completing the weekly competencies.
Students will also be required to work at least one 3-hour shift at an UVa athletic event per semester outside of their clinic shifts.
At the conclusion of the semester, students will be evaluated on their performance. Students that choose to continue with the sports medicine program may be eligible for a stipend and earn an assignment to work with an athletic team pending positive reviews by our staff.
