USC Athletics to Transition Student-Athlete Care to Keck Medicine of USC

From Sarah Van Orman, MD, MMM, FACHA, Chief Health Officer for USC Student Health, Division Chief for College Health, Keck School of Medicine of USC

Dear Staff,

As you may have read from Keck Medicine of USC, the care of USC Athletics sports medicine will become part of USC Student Health’s portfolio of patient care.

We have created strong partnerships with USC Athletics, especially as safety of student athletes practicing and competing during the pandemic has been part of the strong work of our teams throughout the past year. This builds on the superb care established earlier with our sports psychology team in Counseling and Mental Health Services.

We are proud of the confidence expressed by this decision—confidence in our clinical operations, nursing, medical providers, counseling and mental health teams, and all the administrative support teams that make the work of providing excellent care possible.

Thank you for your strong work. Together, we are building an outstanding model of patient care for college students.
