Friday Night Injury Clinic

UMMC is committed to keeping our patients, staff, students and visitors safe as we continue to respond to the spread of COVID-19. Due to temporary visitor restrictions, injured student-athletes may be accompanied by one person during their visit. Mask-wearing is required for entry.

Student-athletes injured in a Friday night football game during the regular high school season can be brought to UMMC for care. With sports medicine specialists and radiological services on site, the UMMC Friday Night Injury Clinic is open to care for high school athletes whose injuries are not extreme enough for a trip to the emergency room. The clinic is open to athletes from all schools who need help for football-related injuries.

Our team treats conditions including bumps, bruises, broken bones; ligament, ACL, and tendon tears; and suspected concussions. For an athlete’s long-term safety and health, it’s critical to have suspected concussions examined and treated immediately. Even if nothing more serious is detected, a prompt medical examination can bring peace of mind to the student and his or her family.

At the Friday Night Injury Clinic, each student-athlete will be examined and treated by a UMMC Orthopaedics expert. The physician’s time is free of charge, though patients are charged for any additional services.

  • The Friday Night Injury Clinic is available only during the regular high school football season.
  • Located at the University Physicians Pavilion, Suite D on the UMMC campus in Jackson.
  • Open Fridays, 9:30-11:30 p.m., or until the last student is seen.
  • Walk-ins are welcome, but if possible, call ahead at (601) 815-4721.
