Sports Medicine Courses for Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, and Other Orthopaedic Professionals

Sports Medicine Courses

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) provides sports medicine courses each year. Specially designed for athletic trainers, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, team surgeons and physicians, and other orthopaedic healthcare professionals, these conferences highlight the latest advances in the field of orthopaedic sports medicine.

Intended Audience

FORE’s sports medicine courses are open to individuals who work with athletes of all levels. Attendees range from strength and conditioning coaches in high school and college programs to trainers, orthopaedic surgeons, and physical therapists from professional sports organizations. About 100 to 200 orthopaedic professionals typically attend each conference, allowing plenty of time for networking and small-group discussion without the stressful atmosphere of a larger crowd.

What to Expect When You Attend a FORE Sports Medicine Conference

Each of FORE’s sports medicine courses prepares participants to diagnose, treat, and prevent a wide range of sports-related conditions, from overuse injuries to complex fractures. Surgical, non-surgical, and rehabilitation techniques are discussed, as are patient evaluation strategies and return-to-activity guidelines. With a variety of sessions scheduled throughout each conference, participants are able to learn about numerous tools, strategies, and techniques they can apply to their practice. And with ample opportunities for 1-on-1 and small group discussions, participants can delve in depth into relevant topics and learn from highly regarded innovators in the field of orthopaedic sports medicine.
