The Carleton University Sports Medicine Clinic was first established in 1972. At this time we were one of the first clinics in Canada to provide diagnosis and treatment for the injured athlete.
Today after more than 30 years of dedication, and commitment to patient care, education, and clinical research, we are pleased to extend our sports medicine education online to physicians, and patients into the next millennium.
