The book is based on
the FIMS' Team Physician Development Course, which has the same
goal: to prepare physicians of any speciality, and to fulfil the
basic fieldside medical needs of athletes.
Each chapter is written by a sports medicine physician with particular
expertise in the material that he/she covers. Together with the CD, this
resource is the key component of the first phase of the FIMS Team Physician
Development Course - the distance-learning phase. It can also be used
by qualified teachers to instruct student physicians.
The text has been divided into two main parts:
Part One: General information for the Team Physician
Part Two: How to manage musculoskeletal sports injuries.
