Welcome to Gonzaga!

The Gonzaga University Athletic Department is concerned with the health and well-being of its student-athletes. For this reason the Athletic Department has made provisions to assure that the medical needs of each student-athlete are taken care of.

This is accomplished by:

  • Systemic and complete health care evaluation and physical examinations.
  • Provide sound examinations, evaluation and diagnosis for every injury or illness.
  • Provide health counseling to student-athletes.
  • Reinforce lifelone health practices that ensure greater quality of life, including strength and conditioning training.
  • Participate in education, preventative programs and diagnosis in alcohol and drug abuse.
  • Conduct an on-going program in injury prevention.
  • Help to assure a safe area for practice and games.
  • Provide confidential treatment of the student-athlete and medical record.

The Gonzaga University Athletic Department has a comprehensive health-care system under the direct supervision of five certified athletic trainers, who in turn work at the direction of Gonzaga University team physicians. The team physicians may utilize other medical professionals in providing care to Gonzaga University student-athletes. The team physicians are informed of all serious injuries of which they have final authority with regard to medical disqualification, treatment, and return to competition.
