Cumberland University's Athletic Training Department is responsible for the prevention, evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, and management of injuries or illnesses sustained during practices or games, as well as on-site coverage of practices to 18 NAIA Division I intercollegiate teams. At present, we provide care for approximately 600 athletes representing Cumberland University in intercollegiate athletic competition. Being an integral part of the University setting, the intercollegiate athletic department functions to provide these individuals with opportunities to develop their potentials by participation in athletics. As part of the provisions of this service, the athletic training department has a legal and ethical obligation to ensure a high degree of health care to all its athletes. It is the purpose of Cumberland University Athletic Training to provide the most efficient and up-to-date care as possible.
