SPHS Sports Medicine Coursework Expands

In just a few weeks, more than 40 students will graduate from South Pasadena High School having completed Sports Medicine 1-2 and Advanced Sports Medicine, thereby completing the State-recognized Patient Care Pathway. In the past two years, these specialized courses have been expanded to expose more students to skills and careers in Sports Medicine.
As part of the coursework, students must complete 30 hours of clinical work. Many students completed their work-based learning with Mike Lee, the SPHS Athletic Trainer and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Head Athletic Trainer. The students assisted Mr. Lee with taping/wrapping, triage, wound care, injury evaluation, and therapy/rehabilitation for SPHS student athletes.
In addition to Patient Care, SPHS offers opportunities for students in eleven other pathways. Click here for more information about all the options for students that are featured in the SPHS Curriculum Course Catalog (pages 65 and 71). Pathway completers also will be recognized during Senior Awards Night on May 29 at 7 p.m.
We are so proud of all pathway completers, including the Sports Medicine students and their teacher, Andre Zumaeta! Go, Tigers!
