Sports Medicine Conferences

The Boise Monthly Sports Medicine Conferences provide continuing education for ATCs, PTs, RNs, PAs, FNPs, and physicians who have an interest in or provide medical coverage for athletes. A strict emphasis is placed on evidence-based approaches to care and management. Attendance is free.

The conference is accredited by the Ada Canyon Medical Education Consortium. PTs and surgery techs can also obtain continuing education credits from their respective governing bodies. BOC EBP credits are offered to ATCs.

Conferences will generally be held on the second Thursday of each month, 7:00-8:00 a.m., January through December, with a break during June, July, and August. Conferences are held at St. Luke’s Boise, Anderson Center, Ada Rooms 2 and 3.
