Princeton University Athletic Medicine (PUAM) includes several health care providers, all of whom are employees of University Health Services (UHS), with the mission of providing the highest quality of healthcare to the student athletes at Princeton University. Our PUAM team is comprised of 11 full time certified and licensed athletic trainers (two of whom are also licensed physical therapists), board certified sports medicine specialists (including an orthopedic consultant), and a sports dietitian as well as access to other health care providers. PUAM is responsible for providing medical services for the 38 Division I sports and Club Rugby at Princeton University. Student athletes at Princeton University have health care services available to them at UHS / McCosh Health Center, as all students have, which includes an urgent care facility, 24 hour inpatient services (during the academic year), travel medicine services, women’s and men’s health services, and counseling and psychological services. In addition, student athletes have access to the training room facilities, Caldwell Field House and Dillon Gym, where athletic training, physical therapy and other services are available. The PUAM staff is committed to maintaining and improving the health and well being of the student athlete, and we look forward to working with you during your participation here. These services are supervised and coordinated by the Director of Athletic Medicine. In addition, a wide range of medical and surgical specialists are available for consultation, and these services are arranged by the Team Physicians / UHS physicians.
