Health and Wellness - Student Services - McDonogh School

Health and Wellness


A nurse is on duty in the infirmary, located on the lower level of the Edward St. John Student Center, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on school days to take care of students' health needs as they arise during the day.

Athletic Training

McDonogh's athletic trainers are committed to providing student-athletes with the highest quality health care. Knowing that each injury is different, our athletic trainers focus on the individual and their needs, developing a path back onto the field that seeks to prevent re-injury.

In addition to the athletic trainers on staff, the team physician, and the associate team physician, McDonogh also has a relationship with the University of Maryland's Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship program. A Fellow from the program comes once a week to meet with students and work with our Athletic Trainers.


At McDonogh we realize that at times student support needs to go beyond purely academic support. McDonogh has a counselor present in each division who is ready to support students socially, emotionally, and academically. Counselors offer a wide range of services from meeting with students and families, lending crisis support, providing referrals to community resources, advocating for students, teaching wellness lessons, working with parent education and peer educators, as well as working with faculty and administration on behalf of students. Questions regarding these services can be directed to the appropriate divisional counselor:

McDonogh’s Medical Advisory Board is a group of volunteer physicians and specialists who advise the school on issues surrounding health and wellness. The Board, which also includes representatives from McDonogh's Infirmary and Athletic Training departments, meets quarterly.
