FOOTBALL MEDICINE ADVANCED COURSE

SCORE FOR YOUR SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE

Football medicine is a context-dependent exercise of knowledge, skills, communication and network. Beyond denominators as graduation degrees and personal skills, continuous training and immersion in advanced teaching experiences are decisive to follow and aim to improve specialists’ practice within the realm of football medicine.

Notably, led by an exceptional faculty team that can add the extra mile – or in our football language – a hat-trick supported in science, skills and factual experience.
The invited world renowned faculty team was carefully selected to ensure participants with a comprehensive and updated learning experience of the main and hot topics, that all doctors should be able to master and manage with ease. These, among other topics, will cover injury and illness prevention, pre-participation cardiovascular and musculoskeletal screening, differential diagnosis, critical workflow, treatment and return to play.

Academia Clínica Espregueira in partnership with Espregueira-Mendes Sports Centre – FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence alongside the beautiful city of Porto are calling and offering you 3 unforgettable days carefully planned with a grand programme on advanced football medicine. This will empower and certify you as an asset for players’ health and sports teams. After this, if your load doesn’t spike, we invite and challenge you to take part in the Football Medicine Advanced Course.

Join us to celebrate our common taste in knowledge and our collective quest for excellence in football medicine care!

Welcome to Porto – Portugal!
