2020 International Sports Medicine Conference

November 7, 2020 to November 8, 2020

The field of sports medicine is constantly evolving and for this reason, there is a continuous need for clinicians to remain informed on the latest approaches to the treatment and management of sports-related injuries. UPMC has a long history of providing sports medicine expertise to athletes around the globe and now it is our honour to bring our 20 years of experience to Ireland.

 

This inaugural, International Sports Medicine Conference brings together some of the most distinguished sports medicine experts across Europe and the U.S. and presents a terrific opportunity for clinicians to connect virtually and share knowledge and experience in treating and rehabilitating athletes at all levels. Our international faculty, whose expertise spans all areas of sports medicine including orthopaedic surgery, sports physiotherapy, concussion, psychology, and nutrition, will deliver brief presentations followed by a question and answer session.  

 

We look forward to engaging with you at the conference.
