VWU Establishes Partnership with Sentara Sports Medicine


Sentara Sports Medicine is now helping to care for Virginia Wesleyan student-athletes, VWU President Scott D. Miller has announced. Under a new partnership, Virginia Wesleyan provides oversight for the athletic training program through Head Athletic Trainer Nicole Curry, and Sentara Sports Medicine supplements those efforts with a team of certified athletic trainers, physical therapists, and exercise physiologists who work with primary care physicians and orthopedic surgeons. All athletic training and sports medicine services will be housed in the Bonnewell Athletic Training Room in the Jane P. Batten Student Center.

"This new relationship with Sentara Sports Medicine will enhance our athletic training services in an efficient manner to our 22 sports," said President Miller. "“Clearly, this is a win-win partnership for Virginia Wesleyan University and our student-athletes. We're happy to welcome Sentara Sports Medicine to our campus.”

Last year, Virginia Wesleyan partnered with Sentara Healthcare to operate the University’s Health Center, located in Allen Village. Sentara Healthcare is a not-for-profit health system serving Virginia and North Carolina, with 12 hospitals, outpatient care centers, imaging centers, and more.
