Sports Medicine Conferences

The Boise Monthly Sports Medicine Conferences provide continuing education for MDs/DOs, ATs, PTs, RNs, PAs, FNPs, and other health care professionals who have an interest in or provide medical coverage for athletes. A strict emphasis is placed on evidence-based approaches to care and management of these patients. There is no fee for attendance.

The activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Utah Medical Association through the joint providership with St. Luke’s Health System. St. Luke’s Health System is accredited by the Utah Medical Association to provide continuing medical education for physicians. BOC credits are offered to ATs. PTs and RNs can also obtain continuing education credits from their respective governing bodies. CME/CEU are provided at one (1) contact hour per conference.

The series is sponsored by St Luke’s Sports Medicine through faculty and staffing resources. Conferences will generally be held on the second Thursday of each month, 7-8 a.m., January through December, with a break during the summer months; June, July, and August. As of September 2024, we will provide a hybrid approach for in-person/virtual learning for each conference. The in-person location is currently set for the Anderson Plaza (5th Floor) on the downtown St. Luke's Boise campus.
