The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Council on Sports Medicine and Fitness is hosting the Sideline Care of the Young Athlete Course at the AAP Headquarters in Itasca, IL.

Participants will learn key elements for developing an emergency action plan, equipment to have on site, medico-legal issues, concussion management, treatment of common on-field injuries and conditions, and common return to sport scenarios. Instructors are experts in the field and there will be ample time for question and answer as well as lively case discussions.

While this course is aimed at the practicing general pediatrician, any provider who cares for young athletes may benefit from attending. Unlike other sports medicine conferences, this course is designed to help prepare the provider for the challenges of seeing young athletes outside of the office setting.

The cost to attend the course is: $200 for Physicians, Allied Health Professionals or $100 for Medical Students, Residents and Post-Residency Training Fellows. More information can be found here.
