IIRM 2018 Sports Medicine Conference Series: Washington, DC

Held in conjunction with the Marine Corps Marathon, Baltimore Running Festival, and the Uniformed Services University Consortium for Health and Military Performance (CHAMP) and jointly sponsored by the West Virginia University School of Medicine.

PURPOSE: Our goals in providing the IIRM’s sports medicine conferences are to increase knowledge of basic sports medicine principals including the clinical aspects of sports injury and physical activity, improve the medical knowledge and clinical skills of individuals volunteering in medical tents at endurance events, and facilitate interdisciplinary communication to enhance delivery of care at athletic endurance events.

AUDIENCE: This program is intended for physicians, nurses, physical therapists, EMTs, athletic trainers, and other health care providers who have an interest in sports medicine, improving the well-being of patients, and providing quality medical care at mass participation endurance events.
