The Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine holds its Annual Scientific Conference (ASC) every September in RCSI.

This is the main event of the year for the Faculty, where Sport and Exercise Medicine Specialists, Doctors from all specialties who have an interest in Sports, Physiotherapists, Athletic Therapists, Sport/Exercise Scientists, Researchers and other Healthcare Professionals gather to exchange expert advice and share their knowledge of Sport and Exercise Medicine.

We have national and international speakers attending the conference every year, and we work from feedback received from delegates the previous year in order to plan the ASC for the following year.
