Welcome to the University of the South Athletic Training webpage. The athletic training room is located on the bottom floor of the Fowler Sport and Fitness Center. The spacious 2,000 square foot athletic training room includes six treatment tables, six taping stations, a rehabilitation area, three whirlpools, a physician's office, and offices for the Assistant Athletic Trainers and the Head Athletic Trainer. The co-ed athletic training room handles all the medical needs for nearly 400 student-athletes participating in 24 varsity sports.
As a student-athlete, if you are sick or injured, we ask that you report to the athletic training room and our staff will thoroughly evaluate your condition. Our staff will work directly with you to identify the cause of your injury and formulate a plan to ensure that when you return to competition, it will not only be safe for you to return, but you will be able to perform at a level that you were prior to your injury.
The University of the South Athletic Training staff works under the direction of our team physician, Michael Jordan, MD. Dr. Jordan works at Tennessee Orthopedic Alliance in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Dr. Jordan is a 1984 graduate of the University of the South, where he played football under head coach Horace Moore. Dr. Jordan was one of 14 recipients of an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship his senior year. In addition to working with Dr. Jordan, the University of the South athletic training staff works with the University Wellness Center, under the direction of Jay McDonald, MD and Tonia Christian, NP-C.
