This annual course is geared to provide current and state-of-the-art evaluation and management of common sports medicine topics for primary care providers and sports medicine professionals. Sports medicine specialists employ a multi-disciplinary approach to treating sports injuries and offer non-surgical and surgical treatment as well as minimally invasive procedures to treat a wide range of sports-related medical conditions. Conservative treatment options include a wide range of physical medicine therapies as well as more advanced management plans. This course will help address the importance of working as a team and knowing what professions to include in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that patients present with to their care givers. This includes the role of physical therapists, athletic trainers, physiatrists, rehabilitation medicine experts and sports nutritionists to coordinate care and optimize an athlete’s recovery. There is a lack of competence in identifying and coordinating the needed care.

Target Audience

This course is designed for internists, family practice physicians, pediatricians, orthopedic surgeons, cardiologists, neurologists, emergency and sports medicine physicians, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, psychologists and psychiatrists, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists and athletic trainers.


The intended result of this live activity is increased knowledge, competence, and performance in the delivery of sports medicine to pediatric and adolescent athletes. At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to :

  • • Describe current recommendations for the diagnosis and management of sport-related concussions
  • • State common injuries of the pediatric hip
  • • Discuss the role of sports specialization in injury development in the young athlete
  • • Discuss the ability of children to participate in a marathon
