Sports Medicine Courses for Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists and Other Orthopedic Professionals
Several sports medicine courses are provided each year by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE). Specially designed for athletic trainers, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, team surgeons and physicians and other medical professionals, these conferences highlight the latest advances in the field of athletic orthopedics.
FORE’s sports medicine courses are open to individuals who work with athletes of all levels; attendees range from strength and conditioning coaches from high school and college programs to trainers, orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists from professional sports organizations. Several hundred medical professionals attend each conference, allowing for plenty of time for networking and small-group discussion without the stressful atmosphere of a large crowd.
FORE’s sports medicine conferences include:
- Detroit Sports Medicine Symposium, hosted in Detroit, Michigan, from July 13-14, 2017
- Chicago Sports, hosted in Chicago, Illinois, from August 3-6, 2017
- Baseball Sports Medicine: Game-Changing Concepts, hosted in New York, New York, from November 2-3, 2017
Each of these 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 rehabilitative techniques are discussed, as are patient evaluation strategies and return-to-activity guidelines. With a variety of sessions scheduled throughout each event, participants are able to learn about numerous tools, strategies and techniques that they can apply to their own professional practices. And, with abundant opportunities for one-on-one and small group discussion, participants can delve in depth into relevant topics and learn from highly regarded innovators in the field of sports medicine.
