European Society of Athletic Training and Therapy
At the fore-front of athletes-care:
A European framework of applicable knowledge and standards in practice
On behalf of the European Society of Athletic Therapy and Training,
we are proud to host the inaugural conference in Jerzmanowice,
Poland. Poland is a country at the geographical centre of Europe,
with one of the oldest universities north of the Alps and a history of
scientific advance reaching back to Copernicus. The time and
location for the conference is 4-5 June, 2010.
The title of the conference is: At the forefront of athletes-care: A European framework of
applicable knowledge and standards in practice. We would like to welcome you to share
the recent scientific developments in the area of sports medicine, focusing on the orthopaedic
management of sports injuries and the rehabilitation of these injuries, with a particular
emphasis on return-to-participation and End Stage Functional Rehabilitation. We believe this
meeting will provide a high quality scientific environment for the presentation of new research
and offer an exchange of information by all disciplines related to sports and medicine. ESATT
is a young and vibrant organization, with many ideas on developing an approach to athletes’
injuries that is proactive, not reactive. It is this dynamism and expertise that are the hallmarks
of a high calibre and carefully arranged scientific programme. We invite you to listen to
lectures in basic science as well as clinically relevant topics, or to take part in hands-on
workshops that are geared toward practitioners.
We hope to see you in Poland at the 1st ESATT Sports Medicine Conference, 4 to 5 June
2010, which will be informative and bring together a range of professionals with the same
goal: Optimizing the health care delivery to all sports participants, and ensuring a rapid return
to participation while minimizing the risk of re-injury. We look forward to being your hosts,
knowing that the conference will be an enlightening and enjoyable experience that should not
