The fifth edition of the IOC Advanced Team Physician Course will take place from 22 to 24 May 2013 in Saltsjöbaden, Sweden.
Organised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in collaboration with world-leading experts in the field of sports medicine, the course is geared towards the practical issues of working with high-level athletes in a team sports setting. Thirty high-level speakers will present exciting case studies during plenary lectures, panel discussions and working groups.
The course will present new evidence on diagnosis and treatment and address topics such as overuse injuries; prevention of recurrent injuries; concussion; knee, hip and shoulder injuries; pediatric training; and cardiology and health protection. A social programme will facilitate discussions and networking outside the scientific sessions.
Arne Ljungqvist, Chairman of the IOC Medical Commission and guest of honour, said, in anticipation of the event: “Let us keep our minds sharp and enjoy and learn a lot from each other during our journey together.”
Places are limited and open to team physicians as well as to a limited number of experienced sports physical therapists. Sign up and learn more at www.ioc-preventionconference.org/atpc2013/
