Over 180 million children and adults participate in sports or other forms of physical activity in the United States annually. Musculoskeletal injuries result in over 99 million ambulatory care visits annually with direct medical costs exceeding $176 billion dollars. Given the value of maintaining physical activity and high costs of treatment, developing cost-effective methods to address sports medicine conditions is of critical importance for sports medicine professionals.
The Comprehensive Sports Medicine Course offered by Harvard Medical School provides an in-depth multi-disciplinary approach to common musculoskeletal conditions by regional anatomy, providing a comprehensive overview in evaluation and management of injuries using best evidence-based practice. Physiatrists, orthopedists, radiologists, and physical therapists with expertise in each topic area will discuss both non-operative and surgical management of sports injuries, including the role of diagnostic imaging, interventional procedures, and rehabilitation to restore function with the goal of facilitating safe return to play. Special topics will include management of concussions, sports cardiology, adaptive sports, bone health in athletes, and regenerative medicine. Additional workshops are available to provide in depth experience in cycling medicine, running medicine, and musculoskeletal ultrasound.
