The Sports Medicine Staff at Caltech is responsible for the coordination of health care to the student-athletes within the intercollegiate athletic program. Included in this responsibility are various administrative and clinical duties that are carried out by the Sports Medicine Staff. Clinically, the staff is responsible for the prevention, evaluation, management, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. This also includes coordination of physician referrals, determination of participation status, and the counseling and education of student-athletes. Additionally, the Sports Medicine Staff coordinates health care of student-athletes relating to general medical illnesses and conditions as they may affect athletic participation which involves referrals to the Health Center, Counseling Center, or other off-campus health care providers.

The Sports Medicine Staff also provides Athletic Training services to the Caltech community, which includes the general student body of undergraduate and graduate students.
