Decisions about medical care for student-athletes should be made by health care providers, not coaches. That’s why schools in all three divisions are subject to rules related to independent medical care. Based on the inter-association best practices developed by the NCAA’s Sport Science Institute, all schools must do two things. First, they must affirm the unchallengeable autonomous authority of the primary athletics health care providers (team physicians and athletic trainers) to determine medical management as well as if it is safe and appropriate for a student-athlete to return to play. Second, they must designate one campus representative to oversee the athletics department’s health care administration and delivery.
