Please join us on February 2-3, 2017 in Clearwater Beach, Florida for an interesting, practical, and interactive educational experience hosted by the UF Running Medicine Clinic.This course is specifically designed for healthcare professionals who have an interest in sports medicine. The course will encompass presentations on diagnosis, treatment, research, education and prevention of athletic injuries presented by experts from many different areas of Running Medicine. The format consists of lectures and breakout sessions, and will include ample time for participants to network with the faculty. Sport medicine physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers and other healthcare team members are invited to Clearwater Beach for an informative and engaging conference that provides opportunities to network with colleagues, and to have specific questions answered by experts.

This year’s conference has been designed so as to allow time for the participants to enjoy the beautiful Sandpearl resort and Clearwater Beach area. Friday afternoon has been left open for them to spend with their family, out shopping, or just enjoying the beautiful beaches. There are so many family friendly activities at the Sandpearl and in Clearwater Beach. For a full list of things to do at the Sandpearl, click here.
