SportSmart is Signature Healthcare's sports medicine program offering comprehensive expert sports medicine and orthopedic care to community athletes by our Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians and SportSmart staff.
SportSmart is a "full care coordination program," taking the injured athlete through the full continuum of sports medicine care.

Athletic Training Program
An athletic trainer is a board certified and state licensed healthcare professional highly trained in the prevention, emergent/immediate response and the rehabilitation of athletes at all levels of participation.
Signature Healthcare athletic trainers not only work closely with our knowledgeable orthopedic surgeons on a day to day basis, but with student athletes as well during each sport season. They provide medical care and appropriate referrals from preseason to the last practice of the year. Our athletic trainers are also avaialble for summer athletic camp coverage and strength conditioning training programs.
Each athletic trainer is extensively trained in the diagnosis, treatment and gradual return to play of orthopedic and concussion related injuries and work closely with our orthopedic and concussoin specialists.
