Training and professional development


Performing Arts Medicine Msc

The Performing Arts Medicine MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert Programme at UCL is a unique course providing specialised training to people from a range of clinical and performance science backgrounds in how to treat the specific health needs of instrumental musicians, singers, dancers, actors and other artists.

Training days

BAPAM training days are usually held twice a year and provide in-depth explorations of key areas of performing arts medicine and unique insights into aspects of performers’ health and wellbeing. We present performers' perspectives as well as the expertise of experienced medical practitioners. The approach is multidisciplinary: physiological and psychological, prevention as well as treatment. We know that it is vital to look at the whole performer, not just the presenting problem.

A complete list of topics covered in BAPAM training programmes can be found here in the Outline Training Curriculum.

BAPAM training days may be used as part of your CPD portfolio.

Focusing on performing arts health, injury prevention and performance enhancement, speakers from BAPAM's Trainer Network are on hand to deliver talks and/or workshops.

More information can be found here: Healthy Performance Education and Training

We’ve provided speakers and training to clients throughout the industry including the Musicians’ Union, Equity, Actors Centre, RAF Music Services, Stage Management Association, the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians) and Leeds College of Music on topics such as injury prevention, instrument ergonomics, the performance environment, vocal health, stress management/psychological self-care, performance enhancement and overcoming performance anxiety.
