Mission Statement

The goal of Loyola University Chicago's sports medicine staff is to provide complete medical service to all Rambler student-athletes. The sports medicine staff prides itself on providing unparalleled medical care through collaboration and education. Staff members are certified and state licensed health care providers. Team physicians are informed of all serious injuries of which they have final authority with regard to medical disqualification, treatment and return to active competition.

Led by Senior Associate Athletics Director Dr. Tom Hitcho and Director of Sports Medicine Dr. Pietro Tonino, the sports medicine staff serves as a link between the coaches, student-athletes and team physicians. It is our hope that student-athletes have an injury-free career but given the intense commitment that is required to be a Rambler, injuries may happen and that is where the sports medicine staff can be of great assistance.
