Sports Medicine

I frequently consult with and present to sports medicine departments and other medical providers to help them improve their services to student-athletes. I will help the audience:

  • Identify the relationship between injuries/concussions and mental health concerns
  • Understand and implement best practice guidelines regarding mental health concerns
  • Recognize role of sports medicine in the referral process and management of mental health concerns
  • Integrate sport psychology concepts into injury rehabilitation
  • Learn practical strategies to be a more effective medical provider

Other objectives for this talk can be negotiated.
