The number of athletes with disabilities participating in organized sports and the popularity of the Paralympic Games is steadily increasing in both Canada and around the world. As with all types of athletes, sports injuries are common among athletes with disabilities. Athletes with disabilities are predisposed to medical conditions and have a higher prevalence than that of a nondisabled individual. Understanding these conditions are vital to the proper prevention, care, and return to activity for these athletes. Furthermore, as participation in endurance and ultra events by adaptive athletes are becoming increasingly common, this course will discuss considerations in endurance sport medicine as it pertains to this athletic cohort.

The goal of the course is to prepare physicians to provide medical care to athletes with physical impairments.

Online registration is now closed. Registration is still available on-site at the Fairmont Banff Springs.
