Course Overview
Friday, June 16th, we will have a full day of fantastic speakers who will update us on a variety of sports medicine topics. 
The focus for our course this year is on red flags that appear in sports medicine and how to identify and treat these pathologies. All of Friday’s content will be on Zoom so you can join us from anywhere!

Saturday, June 17th, we plan to host an in-person hands-on day of workshops at UCSF Mission Bay to explore the use of ultrasound in sports medicine, learn key rehab strategies, like Blood Flow Restriction, to incorporate into your care for patients, and refine your knee and shoulder exam with our experts! We will also do a networking social to mingle with our UCSF faculty and exhibitors. Creating a healthy and safe environment for all of our attendees, faculty, exhibitors, and staff is of the utmost importance as we plan for this meeting. Should we be unable to gather in-person on Saturday we will transform the workshops to a live stream.

You can register for just Friday if you would like only the lecture content, but we love learning and teaching by doing at UCSF so hope that you will make plans to join us on Saturday as well!
