As IUPUC launches its athletics program this year, the school’s athletes will get treatment from medical providers at Columbus Regional Health. The university says it partnering with CRH as its exclusive provider of sports medicine and athletic training services.
IUPUC this spring announced it was joining the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. The school will participate in cross country, baseball, and softball during its first year, and add soccer and volleyball in 2023.
Through the partnership, IUPUC will host dedicated certified athletic training services to support the collegiate-level athletes.
“We are excited to be working with CRH and know they will provide our student athletes with the highest level of care available,” said IUPUC Athletic Director, Zach McClellan. “The success of our athletic program relies heavily on community involvement, and CRH has proven to be a great partner for IUPUC’s nursing program over the years, and we expect that excellence to continue with athletics.”
The partnership will also extend services such as injury screening and management to student athletes, as well as a direct line to the orthopedics and sports medicine specialty providers and staff.
