The Concept

A few things I never liked about seminars, symposiums, (and the like) ... being there by 8 am (hey, it's Saturday) ... the formal, stuffy atmosphere ... and walking around with a name tag on me.  So these are our the guidelines: no name tags, we start at 10 am, and sandals are appropriate.  It's the content of the symposium that counts, anyway.  And we hope to clear that hurdle with a casual exchange of useful information.  It is our intention to make this a stress- free, informal gathering.  

The symposium is directed toward practicing Certified Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists.  However, the information is definitley applicable to PTA's-- and students and anyone with a sports medicine interest are certainly welcome.
Symposium Background 
The process began in July of 1999 with our first symposium.  We put together a skeleton format ("there weren't a whole lot of extras") and charged a minimal fee to get the ball rolling.  We managed to secure some excellent speakers and pulled off a successful program.  The success of our first two attempts has led us to our third effort.  We have made the commitment to turning this into an annual event and we are dedicated to steadily improving and growing this Sports Medicine Gathering.  

As nice as all this is, it doesn't explain our primary motivation for the symposium.  With no offense intended to those of you in the "07" zip code ... it never seems Sports Medicine Professionals get much priority attention in South Jersey.  Most of the seminars aren't in our zip code ... or it's a long haul to get there, and the darn things always start too early for a long drive.  So our primary motivation was (and remains): a symposium in the "08" zip code fills a need to area professionals.

The presentation format for the symposium will be a straight lecture style.  Each presentation will run approximately 40 minutes and be followed by a 5 minute Q&A from the audience.  

We will allow 5 minute "mini-breaks" between each lecture while we set up for the next presentation.  We do ask that you return to your seats within this 5 minute time frame to allow minimal distractions from the start of the next presentation.  The major break will be during lunch which begins at 1:20pm and will last 45 minutes. 

This year we are having a roundtable as the final presentation. It will feature Dr. Sennett and Dr. Zabinski. This will be very informal and we will open this up to the audience for questions on any topic. So come prepared with any questions you've been "jonesing" to ask an orthopod.

Dress Code
What's our dress code?  Well, actually we don't have one.  It's July, it's hot, it's humid, it's NJ .... for those of us who work in high schools or colleges, it's the off-season ... so we ask that you dress comfortably.  Our preference?  We'd love to see everyone relaxing in shorts, and t-shirts.  Formal, shmormal- that's our mantra.
For Certified Athletic Trainers: We are recognized by the NATA Board of Certification to offer continuing education for certified athletic trainers.  An NATABOC report of attendance will be issued for 6 CEU's. 

For Physical Therapists: We are applying for CEU's to the APTA-NJ. We will update that status here as we know more information.

New Jersey Department of Education: We are a New Jersey Professional Development Provider and an report of attendance will be issued for 6 hours.
