History of Our Clinic

Collegiate Sports Medicine Inc was established (2003) with a mandate to better meet the sports medicine needs of Central Alberta’s growing athlete population. Currently athletes are still traveling to Edmonton and Calgary for many sports medicine related services that they require, including coaching, sporting equipment, sporting facilities & sports medicine expertise.

A formal needs-assessment survey was conducted (2001) by Melanie Tuck in developing the clinic for Red Deer (in collaboration with Red Deer College & Alberta Sport Development Centre & The University of Alberta), which showed a tremendous need for such services to be provided locally. A formal comparative analysis was also conducted by her comparing two large sports medicine clinics (Glen Sather Sports Medicine Clinic: UofA-Edmonton & Lindsay Park Sports Medicine Clinic: Calgary) while completing her Masters Degree.

Below is an overview of where our clinic started & how it’s grown over the years with the most recent changes presented first.
