The Professional Athlete Care Team (PACT) clinic at the Tulane University School of Medicine supports your health and safety on and off the field through the Brain and Body program.

The medical assessment delivers a comprehensive health evaluation and treatment plans that target and reduce potential health risks and promote overall wellness in our players.

In the assessment, players are assigned a care manager to ensure rapid access to medical care and clear communication with healthcare providers.
