About this Event

We are excited to announce the first California Concussion Institute Symposium on January 26, 2019 in Santa Clara, California. The inaugural event will be entitled: A Modern Approach to Sport Concussion. The event will be held at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers.

This premier continuing education event brings together some of the top health care professionals in the country that are involved in concussion management. The symposium will offer a unique educational opportunity for physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and other health care professionals to collaborate. Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to hear from a San Francisco Giants player, Brandon Belt, and hopefully one of the San Francisco 49er players.

California Concussion Institute is a specialized concussion facility specializing in injuries related to head trauma. We use the industry’s leading technologies to diagnose, treat, and aid in the recovery process for patients diagnosed with concussions. The California Concussion Institute Advisory Board is made up of health care professionals across all disciplines (MD, PT, ATC) and all athletic settings (professional, collegiate, secondary school).

Course Description

The course will demonstrate real cases and how they were handled with commentary and lectures from internationally recognized experts in the field, emphasizing the active approach to concussion care using a variety of rehabilitation techniques. The audience will learn how to identify and apply emerging techniques into their clinical practice for concussion care. This event will be eligible for continuing education credits. See accreditation section on official conference website for specific details.

In addition to our continuing education course, California Concussion Institute is hosting a free community based educational effort targeting an audience of student-athletes, coaches, parents, and administrators to promote best practices and current beliefs of concussion incidence, recognition and treatments. This free event will be held at Menlo School on Friday, January 25, 2019 at 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM. This event will not be eligible for continuing education credits.
