The 2017 Micheli Lecture | Multidisciplinary Sports Medicine: The Synergy of Clinical Care, Rehabilitation and Performance Banner

Date & Location
Sunday, September 24, 2017 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM   
Folkman Auditorium at Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA


Sports medicine patients often require treatment from a team of specialists. Clinicians, therapists, athletic trainers and performance specialists all play integral roles when caring for injured athletes, yet most sports medicine courses focus on individual specialties and lack a multidisciplinary perspective. 

The 2017 Micheli Lecture will present optimal treatments for injured athletes from the perspective of the clinician, rehabilitation professional and performance specialist. Expert presenters from multiple sports medicine disciplines will discuss a three-dimensional approach to caring for common sport-related injuries and returning patient-athletes to play. 

The interactive course format will include dynamic lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and interactive Q&A sessions with physicians, surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers and performance specialists. 

Target Audience 

This course is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and nurses who care for athletes, practice or have an interest in: 
  • sports medicine
  • orthopedics 
  • rehabilitation 
  • athletic performance 
  • primary care
