The clinic will also remain a teaching component of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management’s bachelor of kinesiology-athletic therapy degree program

May 11, 2017 — 

Effective immediately, the Bison Athletic Therapy Centre (BATC) is focusing exclusively on the health and well-being of University of Manitoba Bison student-athletes.

The BATC is no longer accepting U of M staff, students, or the general public as athletic therapy patients. Massage therapy services will continue to be offered until June 30.

The BATC will continue to remain a teaching and practicum component of the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management’s bachelor of kinesiology-athletic therapy degree program.

The University of Manitoba and the BATC would like to thank past clients for their business, referrals, and trust.

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to provide our client-base with athletic and massage therapy care,” says Gene Muller, Director of Recreation and Athletics, University of Manitoba.

“As our athletic programs continue to grow, it’s paramount we have a significant and primary focus on injury rehabilitation and injury prevention of our student-athletes.”
