Mission Statement

The Sports Medicine staff at Saint Anselm College will strive to provide every student-athlete with the most comprehensive, highest-quality individual sports medicine health care in a professional, efficient, compassionate and service-oriented manner.

By following the NCAA Best Practice Guidelines, we will develop a diversified program of prevention, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation by our staff and will assure a positive and healthy recovery experience, an improved quality of life, a safe return to full athletic participation and continued athletic success.
