Performing Arts Medicine (PAM) day 2019

There’s less than a month to go until a one-day course providing an introduction to Performing Arts Medicine. The annual PAM day is aimed at health professionals, performers, those studying and working in health sciences and performance academies.

PAM day will be held on Saturday 15th June at Institute of Sports Exercise and Health in London. It is organised by those involved in the Performing Arts Medicine MSc at UCL which is run by the Division of Surgery and Interventional Science.

So, what can you expect from the day? Well experts closely involved in the sector – including several BAPAM practitioners – will be leading sessions on a wide range of topics from clinical assessment of musician’s injury to performance anxiety and hypermobility in dance.

The MSc at UCL is a unique programme providing specialised training to those interested or already involved in offering health services to this very special sector of instrumental musicians, singers, dancers, actors and other performing artists.

BAPAM is closely involved with the MSc and our clinicians and registered practitioners are integral to the delivery of UCL’s Performing Arts Medicine MSc. Programme lead of the MSc and organiser of the PAM day Dr Hara Trouli is also an assessing clinician at BAPAM.

Director Claire Cordeaux says, “we are delighted to have been involved with the MSc from the start and it is wonderful to see how it is developing. We are proud to support this programme by offering clinical observation opportunities and enormously grateful to the graduates who go on to work with us.”

BAPAM Registered Practitioners may count attendance at this event as one of their mandatory biennial Performing Arts Medicine Training Days. As this event is administered by UCL, tickets must be booked directly with UCL and discounts for BAPAM Practitioners are not available.  To book tickets click here
