NEW ORLEANS, LA--Tulane University has announced that it now offers a graduate certificate in Sports Medicine. It will partner with the Tulane School of Medicine and the Center of Sport.

This graduate certificate is held by the Tulane School of Professional Advancement or SoPA. The program itself will begin in summer 2021.

“We are very excited to add this stackable certificate to the master’s program. This is a first-of-its-kind program to help non-medical sports professionals understand the breadth of the health and well-being of athletes,” said Dr. Greg Stewart, the W. Kennon McWilliams Professor of Sports Medicine in Orthopaedics and co-founder of the Tulane Center for Sport.

The Sports Medicine Certificate provides knowledge and skills essential for assessing athletic injuries. The program also introduces responses to emergencies involving athletes, along with research into sports performance methods.

The certificate itself will include 12 credits across a diverse base of knowledge and skills in medicine. It will also have credits in sports conditioning and learning about nutrition necessary to work with current and former athletes.

Students with this certificate can pursue jobs in the sports world ranging from exercise physiologists, athletic trainers, and strength and conditioning coaches. Students can also use this certificate to apply for an athletic administrator.

This certificate is a stand-alone certificate in sports medicine so that students can join this program with other sports-focused, graduate-level credentials toward an online Masters in Professional Studies. The program itself follows a multidisciplinary approach, emphasizing a broad set of skills to allow students to pursue various roles in sports-related jobs.

The Sports Medicine Certificate and the MPS in Sports Studies programs are available online, allowing students to learn at their own pace.
