BAPAM brings together clinical specialists across the UK as well as a network of educators. Working with our partners in UCL’s Performing Arts Medicine MSc group, we combine to provide continuing professional development opportunities for clinicians and teachers who wish to build their skills in performance health. We also support leading practitioners to share their work with the wider community through UK and international events and conferences.
DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS
BAPAM Training Days
BAPAM training events are a key resource for healthcare and education professionals. We explore key areas of performing arts medicine and unique insights into performance health and wellbeing, and include the perspectives of artists and creators as well as the expertise of experienced medical practitioners. The approach is multidisciplinary: physiological and psychological, prevention as well as treatment.
As we are unable to gather in person, in 2020 we will deliver our training through a webinar series, a format we plan to explore further as an opportunity to expand our training provision and enable wider access to a flexible ongoing programme. The UCL Performing Arts Medicine group, whose annual PAM Day training event we recommend to all our practitioners, will also be delivering online training this year.
To stay informed about forthcoming events, we recommend signing up to our quarterly eNewsletter. We do not share your details with anyone else and you can unsubscribe at any time.
