The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow Scottish Sports and Exercise Medicine Symposium 2015 is the leading event in Scotland for anyone with an interest in Sports and Exercise Medicine.

The symposium has been designed to develop enhanced knowledge and to provide you with the latest thinking and advances in current practice to optimise patient outcomes. An expert panel of national and international speakers will provide updates on current hot topics including concussion and physical activity.

Sir Alex Ferguson
