This year's theme is "Competitions and Creative Collaborations: Identifying and Promoting Healthy Artistry from Studio to Stage" and the primary learning objectives are as follows:

After participating in this Symposium, attendees will be able to improve the care of performers and advance the work of performing arts medicine as a field by:

  • Identifying current practices in arts and entertainment leading to biomechanical problems that contribute to injuries in performing artists.

  • Applying emerging research and treatment options for common musculoskeletal and neurologic problems and identifying specific treatment implications for the performing arts clinician.

  • Incorporating wellness education and information about the potential physical/psychological risks of performance, particularly those risks related to participation in competitions, in the care of both student and professional performers.
