Sports Injury Assessment and Management
What is SIAM
The focus of the SIAM area of interest is to help students develop understanding and skill in theoretical principles and applied practices related to the prevention and care of injury in sport and physical activity. The design of this area of interest provides courses and practical experiences as the students work with varsity athletes prior to, during and post-injury. Academic and practical requirements include knowledge and/or skill in: injury prevention, immediate injury assessment, initial emergency care, contemporary sport-specific conditioning techniques, physical re-conditioning after injury for specific activity/sports, supportive strapping procedures and protective equipment.
