Sports Medicine Minor
There are many medical professions that have a sport focus (physical therapist, athletic trainer, physician, physician assistant, nurse, occupational therapist). The sports medicine minor is designed to expose students to the various injuries and rehabilitation techniques that are specific to sport. Students will learn the foundations of anatomy and physiology and then use this knowledge to understand basic evaluation, management and prevention techniques for sport related injury.
In addition to the program requirements listed below, students must:
- take at least nine hours of their minor "core" requirements at UNC–Chapel Hill
- earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.000 in the minor core requirements. Some programs may require higher standards for minor or specific courses.
For more information, please consult the degree requirements section of the catalog.

Students will have the opportunity to obtain clinical experience through working with a health care professional in an athlete health care facility. See the program page here for additional special opportunities.
