19th Annual CU Sports Medicine Fall Symposium

The 19th Annual CU Sports Medicine Fall Symposium will be held Friday, September 13th at the Stadium Club at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado. This course is presented by the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Department of Orthopedics, Division of Sports Medicine. The focus of this year’s course is on the diagnosis, treatment, and rehab of upper extremity injuries.

This year's conference will offer an in-person and on-demand option, however, CME for physicians will only be available to in-person attendees. We cannot offer CME credit to on-demand physicians attending. CEU's will be offered to both in-person and on-demand non-physicians (PT, AT, etc). In an effort to get as much in-person attendance as possible, there will be no virtual livestream during the conference. We will offer an in-person registration option and a virtual on-demand option only. For more information, visit the tabs above and below.


  • This symposium is intended for physicians and allied health professionals who are involved in the care of athletes. Anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of athletic injuries and conditions of the upper extremity is welcome to attend. The objective of this course is to educate participants on the best methods of managing athletes with injuries of the upper extremity. According to the education levels described by the PDC, the following continuing education course is considered to be Advanced Level. This course is led by Eric McCarty, MD, at the CU School of Medicine Department of Orthopedics.


  • At the conclusion of this conference, attendees will be able to:
  • Determine indications for surgical and non-operative treatments of rotator cuff tears

There are advanced techniques in arthroscopic and open surgery for patients and athletes with shoulder instability. Additionally, there are new and evolving thoughts and techniques regarding the rehabilitation of the patients with shoulder instability in both those treated nonoperatively and those treated operatively. The advances in surgery and rehabilitation are important for the audience to learn
  • Apply appropriate rehabilitation strategies for the S.I.C.K scapula
  • Apply understanding of the role of the scapula in shoulder function to enhance diagnosis and treatment of shoulder dysfunction
  • Implement imaging and examination techniques to understand the issues that throwing athletes have with the shoulder and the elbow and will implement strategies to improve the treatment of these athletes
