By bringing physician athletes together in one setting, the Global Congress on Medicine and Health in Sport showcases the academic pursuits of our cohort and provides a venue to educate.

The 2015 Global Congress on Medicine and Health in Sport
The Global Congress on Medicine and Health in Sport (GCMHS) is the annual medical conference held in conjunction with the WMFC. The goal of the Congress is to bring active physicians and other medical luminaries together to educate, innovate, and improve the quality of care we deliver in our communities around the world. The GCMHS is an integral part of the week’s activities and is the pride of our unique physician cohort. The Congress schedule will include symposia devoted to injury prevention, orthopedics/sports medicine, concussions/head injury, and exercise physiology, sports cardiology, nutrition and metabolism. This year’s Congress will culminate in the first ever World Health Systems Symposium, which will be devoted to the global obesity epidemic. We’ll approach this complex issue from the angle of active physicians who understand the importance and interplay of lifestyle and medicine, from public health policies to the patient-physician relationship. This year’s GCMHS will be an amazing, educational event and one of the highlights of the 2015 WMFC.
