Medications are prescribed to treat and alleviate conditions and symptoms, but may be banned in sport. The NCAA and NAIA understand there are certain scenarios where a student-athlete is required to take a banned medication. This webinar will dive into the key steps and procedures that need to be taken when a student-athlete needs a medical exception/exemption. Mark Bockelman, Chief Operating Officer, and Erika Kuhr, Senior Director of Sport Drug Testing, will share the important steps to take when submitting and appealing a medical exception/exemption. Participants will also partake in a collaborative Q&A, where our speakers will address questions related to medical exception/exemption policies and procedures.

  1. Identify key steps of the medical exception/exemption process.
  2. Apply the information outlined to their student-athletes’ medical exception/exemption needs.
  3. Discuss the required documentation needed for student-athletes to submit or appeal for a medical exception/exemption.
