Student Congress to Include Lectures on Career Paths in Sport and Exercise Medicine

The second ECOSEP Student Sport and Exercise Medicine Congress will be taking place at Imperial College London on the 12th and 13th of October 2013

This meeting is aimed at medical students with an interest in Sport and Exercise Medicine and those wanting to find out more about how to get involved in a specialty which has traditionally been under-represented in medical school teaching.

ECOSEP have arranged an exciting and varied programme of lectures and workshops over the 2-day timetable.  Sessions will include lectures on career paths in Sport and Exercise Medicine, the prescription of exercise and exercise physiology.  A full day’s worth of workshops are also available to give students a chance to hone their examination skills in a sport-specific way and to give a flavour of the pressures of working in the pitch-side environment.

There will also be a poster competition with a first prize of £100 for the winner, £50 and £25 for second and third place. All accepted posters will be displayed for the duration of the congress.

The programme is packed with some fascinating and vastly experienced speakers and promises to be both educational and enjoyable.  In addition, the Saturday night social promises to be a night not to be missed and difficult to remember.
