2019 Symposium


Each year, we bring together the best and brightest in sports chiropractic--from the students pioneering new research to the movers and shakers insuring that chiropractic always has a seat at the table in sports and athletic arenas. Our annual sports symposium is always a ton of fun and offers opportunities to build your professional network, to stay connected to the developments in sports medicine and to attend cutting-edge information sessions.  We have a full weekend of social events planned, including an off-site gathering, vendor hall social, and Sunday outing with new friends.

WHEN: October 18-19, 2019 

WHERE: Miami, FL at the Hyatt Regency Miami.

STUDENT PROGRAM: This year will offer many unique networking opportunities for our student attendees. Practice your interview skills in a speed-dating-style interview event for one-on-one time with your future colleagues. Bring your business card or CV and find out what docs are looking for in a preceptor or associate. You may even get a job! Our roundtable event will give you more face time with sports chiros as they provide valuable mentorship advice from how to start a sports chiropractic practice to what it takes to get hired. To increase your time with doctors, you will be part of the general lecture program and hands-on portions with an array of invaluable clinical information. As always, there will be plenty of social events to build connections that could jumpstart your career in sports medicine! 10th ANNUAL DR.
