Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Conferences Scheduled for 2020

Sports Medicine Conferences 2020Treating athletes is a major focus of many orthopaedic surgeons and other orthopaedic healthcare professionals. Falls, collisions, and non-sports-related injuries can send players to the sidelines and threaten their ability to participate in the sports that are their passion – and maybe even their livelihood.

Fortunately, orthopaedic sports medicine is constantly evolving and improving the ability of practitioners to get their active patients back in the game. For this reason, the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) is offering several sports medicine conferences in 2020, giving practitioners a range of opportunities to enhance their knowledge of the latest techniques and technologic advances.

5th Annual Baseball Sports Medicine Conference: Game-Changing Concepts

FORE’s conference schedule features CME courses focused on a range of topics relevant to orthopaedics. These specialized courses provide opportunities for orthopaedic professionals to learn new strategies for dealing with challenges they encounter in their day-to-day practice and network with others who share their professional interests.

For example, FORE’s annual Baseball Sports Medicine conference is a must-attend course for anyone who treats baseball players, whether at the professional, collegiate, or youth level. Certain to be one of the most popular sports medicine conferences FORE will be hosting in 2020, this course covers many key aspects of baseball sports medicine, including:

  • Injury trends
  • Injury prevention strategies
  • Examination procedures
  • Surgical and non-surgical treatment recommendations
  • Rehabilitation protocols
