Several allied health classes will be starting in January at various Surry Community College locations throughout Surry and Yadkin counties.
Sports Medicine Technology II, designed for students who are looking to work in the field of sports medicine, will be offered Jan. 16 through May 15 in Room J-201 on Surry’s campus. Students will meet each Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to explore and discover the necessary skills and knowledge in the basic fundamentals and concepts in health science, medical terminology, emergency preparedness, anatomy and biomechanics, kinesiology and injury, therapeutic modalities and rehabilitation, and fitness programming and design.
Upon completion of this course, the student will be eligible to sit for a national certification with a number of different nationally accredited organizations such as the NASM, ACE, ACSM, and NETA. In addition to acquiring the skills needed to obtain a national certification, the student will also be positioned to transition into other advanced level programs and degrees in the sports medicine field.
This course is divided into two parts – Sports Medicine Technology I and II with Part I traditionally offered during the fall. Students are eligible to sit for certification(s) at the end of each part. A high school diploma or High School Equivalency diploma is required to enroll in this class.
