The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (NJSACB), the Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC) Medical Chair and lead MMA/Muay Thai physician for the NJSACB, Dr. Sherry Wulkan, in conjunction with Atlantic Health of Morristown Hospital, is pleased to announce a CME accredited symposium in Combat Sports Medicine.
“The symposium kicks off the first Combat Sports fellowship elective in the nation. We believe this approach toward proactively training physicians in the nuances of Combat Sports medicine will help meet the need for well versed ringside doctors for these increasingly popular athletic contests now and in the future.
“In the interest of fighter health and safety, we hope both the symposium and this novel approach to Sports Medicine Fellowship training, sparks interest in incorporating Combat Sports Medicine into medical curricula throughout the country.”
