The SBU Advantage

  • Engage in hands-on clinical and practical learning experiences that are selected specifically for your interests and career goals.
  • Use your knowledge to help others through opportunities such as an annual integrated healthcare mission trip to the Dominican Republic.
  • Learn from qualified and experienced faculty in small class cohort sizes for an exceptional educational experience.

Faith Integration

At SBU, you will learn skills for allied healthcare professions from the perspective of a Christian worldview. For example, you will be challenged to consider how an injury affects the whole person — body, mind and soul — and then learn how to work with the injured person and the emotions they are experiencing due to the injury. SBU's sports medicine program produces skilled, dedicated, caring and ethical professionals who are servant leaders as they interact with coworkers, clients and patients.

As a sports medicine major at SBU, you also will have various opportunities to use your skills and education, combined with your Christian faith, to help others in need. For example, the department participates in an annual integrated healthcare mission trip to the Dominican Republic.
