Sports Medicine 15/25/35

Sports Medicine 15/25/35 introduces a progression of information related to the prevention, identification, and treatment of athletic injuries. All sports medicine students will have the opportunity to participate in a Red Cross Standard First Aid / CPR course certification for an additional cost that will cover the required Red Cross manual and certification card expenses $35.00. Guest speakers may include but are not limited to Calgary EMS Paramedics, Physiotherapists, Acupuncturists, Massage Therapists and Yoga Instructors. The sports medicine program at NSS is a hands-on project-based program that challenges students to work collaboratively and creatively while increasing their knowledge and understanding of anatomy, physiology, and injury management. As the program progresses, students are expected to become more independent, demonstrate initiative and take on leadership roles within the classroom.
