Athletic Training Outreach Program

Why choose Ochsner Health athletic trainers?

The Ochsner Andrews Sports Medicine Institute’s Athletic Training Outreach Program is the largest in the Gulf South. We have more than 200 Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) who work with athletes of all ages and support them throughout their careers. Our team works with middle school, high school, college, university and professional sports teams across Louisiana and Mississippi, including athletes in the NBA and NFL.

Athletic trainers save lives.

Our certified athletic trainers are allied healthcare professionals, meaning they work with physicians and clinicians to provide patients with the highest quality of care. They provide preventative services, emergency care, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation.

Ochsner athletic trainers are an asset to any program. They are CPR and AED certified, and they are trained in injury prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries. Our team treats an array of rare and common sports injuries, such as concussions, fractures, bursitis, tendonitis and more.

Our athletic trainers can help navigate Ochsner’s comprehensive network of healthcare services by facilitating expedited appointments with physicians and clinicians in other specialties when necessary.

We provide:

  • Concussion management
  • Documentation and data tracking
  • Emergency action plans

Injury evaluation, specified treatment plans and sport-specific rehabilitation

  • Louisiana High School Athletic Association and collegiate preparticipation physicals
  • Sideline emergency care
  • Weather-monitoring software to keep athletes safe in extreme conditions or temperatures

Ochsner athletic trainers work with a sports medicine team that includes fellowship-trained primary care sports medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons and advanced practice providers.
