Injuries happen. Whether it’s from playing an intramural sport or performing daily activities, our athletic trainers are here for all UW-Madison students. Available services include injury evaluation, treatment planning, rehabilitation, sports medicine education, and injury prevention.

Our athletic trainers also support more than 2,100 sport club athletes to ensure that they are safely performing at the highest level.

In-person athletic training appointments are available in the Athletic Training Room. At the time of your appointment, wait in the lower-level waiting area near the bottom of the stairs and the athletic trainer will meet you. Lacrosse balls and hand therapy are available for rent as well as resistance bands for purchase at the member services desk. Additional rehab equipment including foam rollers, ankle weights, resistance bands, bosu balls are available for use throughout the Nick.

Telemedicine

Virtual appointments are offered through telemedicine and allows students to be assessed by our Athletic Trainers from the comfort of their own home. If your injury is preventing you from visiting one of our facilities or you are unsure if you need to see a provider in person, telemedicine is for you.

In-person athletic training appointments are available on the 5th floor of 333 East Campus Mall. Arrive early to your scheduled appointment to allow for enough time for check-in on the iPads. Medical equipment is available for purchase here through UHS.

Lakeshore Clinic

In-person drop-in appointments are available from 5-8pm Monday through Thursday for sport club athletes at the clinic located on the main floor of Dejope Residence Hall. Openings are limited, so if a provider cannot see you upon arrival, we will work with you to schedule an appointment.
