PlaySafe's Mission & Vision Statements

The mission of the UCSF PlaySafe Sports Medicine Program is to provide a safe and positive environment for athletic pursuits, to facilitate access to the highest quality sports medicine care, and to encourage physical and mental growth by empowering student-athletes to lead balanced, physically active lifestyles.
