Dear colleagues,


I am pleased to welcome you to the 2017 3rd Annual Nguyen Sports Medicine Annual Symposium which aims to gather a broad spectrum of sub-specialties to discuss and debate recent advances in the field of health care, sports performance, orthopedic surgery, and sports medicine. The aim of the symposium is to present a non-didactic, interactive, concise, focused, and practical, ‘use tomorrow’ approach to common clinical scenarios in sports medicine. The perspective is multifaceted and is seen through the lens of the various sub-specialties of primary care medicine, sports medicine, orthopedic surgery, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic therapy, athletic training, coaching, teaching, nursing, law, politics, and business.


Last year’s sports medicine symposium held on Saturday February 6th, 2016 was a success (  and I would like to again thank the scientific committee, guest speakers, and all attendees for taking the time from their busy family and work commitments, brave the weather and travel from far to attend this special event to share their knowledge.

Learning objectives:  

Improve your knowledge of:


1. The up-to date management of sports-related injuries on and off the field and in the office setting

(epidemiology, mechanism of injury, diagnosis, prevention, treatment)

2. Management of common injuries in specific sports (soccer, basketball, hockey, performance arts) and in special subgroups (female athletes, pediatrics).

3. The anatomy and pathology of injuries with X-ray, MRI & surgical/arthroscopic correlations.

4. The physical examination of the shoulder, elbow, and knee via live hands-on demonstrations, images and videos

5. Surgical indications for sports-related fractures and injuries commonly seen in the office

6. Joint injection techniques with hands-on and video education tools.

7. Management of concussions

8. Recent research advances in the sports medicine literature.


These learning objectives were developed based on requests from the sports medicine community in the Greater Toronto Area throughout the years. Learning is achieved via podium presentations, direct interaction with experts in the field, posters, electronic posters, education booths, videos, practical hands-on sessions, and scientific exhibits. Questions will be posed in the evaluation forms to assess the knowledge achieved by the participants. Answers will be posted on the website after the symposium and the aim is to translate this newly acquired knowledge into better patient care and health outcomes.


I look forward to the lively debates, questions, and contributions from our scientific committee/attendees. 


An ‘Excellence in Sports Medicine Education’ award will be presented to the best presenter of the symposium.


Please also save the date Saturday February 3rd, 2018 for next year’s 4th Annual sports medicine symposium.
