TEAM PHYSICIAN EVENTS UNDERWAY THIS WEEK
ACSM has a long standing commitment to and leadership with team physicians. Two important events for the team physician take place this week: the ACSM Team Physician Course and the Team Physician Consensus Conference.
The Team Physician Course will take place in Orlando, Fla., February 4-8. ACSM created the courses to meet the needs of clinical practitioners who care for and manage athletic teams as part of their total practice. More information on the course and program is available here.
One of ACSM’s centerpiece activities in clinical sports medicine leadership is the multi-association Team Physician Consensus Conference. Since 1999, the ACSM-led alliance and conference has produced a series of consensus statements on a variety of topics affecting care and treatment issues of athletes. More importantly, this program produces the only full catalog of team physician educational documents in the field of sports medicine. This year, the conference will produce the 11th title in its series, focused on the Masters Athlete. It takes place February 7-8 in Dallas, Texas. To access the documents, click here.
The project-based alliance includes the American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine.
