Overview:

This year's 2nd Annual Sports Medicine Symposium is focused on ages 5-18 years old. There has been a substantial increase in pediatric sports participation at all levels, which has increased the frequency of sport-related injuries. This year's symposium will focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a multitude of sports-related injuries. Topics will include the management of common medical conditions in athletes, concussion care, early sport specialization, mental health, shoulder instability, hip impingement, and many other musculoskeletal conditions.

 

The conference is sponsored by University of Utah Health in collaboration with the United States Olympic Committee, committed to providing high level care for pediatric athletes at all levels.
