Anatomy and Sports Medicine
With the growth of interest in the field of Sports Medicine from Saintsmen, the program has evolved into a multifaceted entity within the science and athletic departments. In 2005, St. Augustine High School became one of the few high schools in the area that offered Anatomy and Sports Medicine as a course within the science department. The course is designed for Saintsmen who may be interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare industry; including but not limited to physicians, emergency services, certified athletic trainers, etc. Student athletic trainers assist in the daily operation of the athletic training facility at St. Augustine High School. They assist with hydration, stretching, rehabilitation, and taping of our student-athletes.
Senior Saintsmen, prior to graduation, have the opportunity to enroll in Medical Internship during Intersession. With the help from alumni, parents, and friends of St. Augustine High School, we are able to offer a variety of internship sites throughout San Diego County. We have medical internships available with Medical Doctors, Veterinary, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Chiropractic Medicine, and Physical Therapy. If you are interested in participating as a medical internship site, please contact Ms. Samantha Villa for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
