COURSE DESCRIPTION


The Advanced Team Physician Course is a collaborative effort between ACSM, AMSSM and AOSSM. The live activity is designed to provide up-to-date information on the evaluation and treatment of medical illnesses and musculoskeletal injuries occurring in competitive and recreational athletes. While the emphasis will be on athletes participating in team sports, many topics will be applicable to competitors in individual sports. The live activity format utilizes lectures, case presentations, debates on controversial topics, panel discussions, question-and-answer sessions as well as informal discussions with the faculty. Presenters will rely on evidence-based medicine where available.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This conference should prove valuable to any team physician, certified athletic trainer, physical therapist or coach concerned with the management or prevention of injuries to the team.
