Description: This full day workshop will introduce PM&R residents and fellows to core principles of treating performing artists. Lectures will present common functional impairments faced by artists and strategies for assessment and treatment. This will be presented in both a didactic and hands-on format. Dance medicine workshops will allow the learner to practice a live assessment of performers. These will be conducted by physiatrists who have great experience as both practitioners of dance medicine as well as being performers themselves. In addition, other hands-on workshops will include ultrasound, electrodiagnosis, foot / ankle physical examination, as well as plain film imaging. There will also be a lecture on developing critical career development skills.
