Athletic Trainers (ATs) are healthcare professionals who collaborate with physicians and act as a liaison between the healthcare professionals, student-athletes, coaches, and athletic department.
The Athletic Training staff is responsible for the health and safety of the intercollegiate student-athletes at Baruch College. Their services include but are not limited to injury prevention, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
The Athletic Training staff consists of the Head Athletic Trainer, per diem athletic trainers, team physicians, and Student Health Center. All athletic related injuries and illnesses must be reported to the Head Athletic Trainer immediately.
The Athletic Training Room, B3-116, is located in the Athletic and Recreation Center (ARC) within the basement (B3 level) of the William and Anita Newman Vertical Campus (VC) on the corner of 24th Street and Lexington Avenue. For directions, click here.
