About Health Services

Health services provides quality health care, health education, preventative services, and opportunities for experiential learning to Colby students. We are advocates for the lifelong health and wellness of our community.


Colby students have the unique opportunity to work closely with Colby’s athletic trainers. All student workers are certified in first aid and CPR/AED. Student workers assist the athletic trainers with the day-to-day operation of the Nelson Center Athletic Training Room. Student workers often assist athletic trainers in pre-game and post-game setup of equipment and supplies. While these students do not directly provide rehabilitative services to student athletes, they do gain firsthand experience in the field of sports medicine by closely observing the athletic trainers. These students are always available to provide aid in an emergency situation. If you are interested in becoming a student worker with the Athletic Training Services staff, please contact Chris O’Toole.
