The 8th Annual Current Concepts in Sports Medicine course will provide clinicians with guidance on the identification, prevention and treatment of articular cartilage injuries, shoulder injuries in the contact athlete and soft tissue injuries in all athletes. The best available evidence and state of-the-art information from the rehabilitation staff, surgeons and physicians of Hospital for Special Surgery, along with guest lecturers, will provide participants with knowledge on how to care for the surgical and non-surgical patients among the sports medicine population.

Recognize the most current approaches for managing and treating shoulder injuries in the contact athlete.
