USEMS are proud to announce the inaugural UK Undergraduate Sports & Exercise Medicine Practical Conference, 21&22nd February 2015, to be held in Cardiff. Presenting a weekend of first-class teaching in skills you will need to work in the field of sport and exercise medicine in the future, this is THE student conference of 2015. From musculoskeletal ultrasound and surface anatomy to motivational interviewing and movement screening, we have lined up experts from all over the UK to teach the next generation of SEM practitioners the skills needed to succeed. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded individuals whilst practicing skills that will put you ahead of the curve in your chosen career. So whether you're studying physiotherapy, sport science, sports rehabilitation or medicine, if you're interested in sport medicine then this is a great opportunity for you.
Both mornings will focus on the surface and ultrasound anatomy of the upper and lower limb respectively, with teaching from an expert panel of radiologists, surgeons, SEM physicians and physiotherapists such as Mr Chris Oliver and Craig Ranson. This is the only conference in the UK specifically providing education in these areas to students, so the opportunity is not one to pass. The afternoons will provide the opportunity to rotate between different small-group workshops covering a variety of topics from First Aid and Trauma to the use of psychology within SEM. There will also be a practical hydrotherapy session on offer on the Sunday morning, giving you an insight into the processes of modern rehabilitation. We can also confirm that speaking at the conference will be Mr Prav Mathema (Head of Medical Services at the Welsh Rugby Union and Lions Rugby Physiotherapist) and Dr Geoff Davies (WRU team doctor), two great speakers of international repute. There will also be a USEMS social event on the Saturday night, with more information to follow, but it will be a fantastic opportunity to socialise with like-minded people who you may end up working with one day!
