Minnesota Dance Medicine Foundation

Medical Professionals Conference

Keynote Speaker, Dr. MJ Liederbach, PT, ATC, PhD

The MDMF medical conference offers continuing education to health care providers with hands-on learning, national guest lecturers, and tangible information for immediate application. We strive to provide our attendees the most current evidence based approach to dancer evaluation, surgical intervention, and rehabilitation.

This conference is designed for orthopedic surgeons, primary care physicians, pediatricians, certified athletic trainers, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, chiropractors, occupational therapists and other providers who are interested in dance medicine. We encourage medical professionals to register for both the medical and dancer conference days. Medical professionals who attended past conferences have greatly benefited from additional educational opportunities, one-on-one interaction with the dance community, and by watching dancers learn injury prevention techniques.

There are currently no set dates for upcoming medical conferences. Please check back.
