Attended by doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and a number of students
and professional performers, PAM day at UCL offered time for networking and discussions on the health and rehabilitation of performing artists. The day consisted of talks by experts in performance anxiety, hypermobility in dance, musical theatre performer rehabilitation, circus artists injuries and musicians’ clinical assessment. Delegates also got a chance to hear research studies from MSc graduates of the course and have a workshop on musicians’ warm-up by our current MSc students.
BAPAM is closely involved with the MSc and our clinicians and registered practitioners are integral to the delivery of UCL’s Performing Arts Medicine MSc. Programme lead of the MSc and organiser of the PAM day Dr Hara Trouli is also an assessing clinician at BAPAM.
BAPAM also presented an update on current activities and plans for the future and several BAPAM practitioners also attended as part of their annual training scheme. PAM DAY offers 5 Learning hours on a UCL Certificate of Participation.
