Welcome to the Big Sky Athletic Training Sports Medicine Conference, BSATSMC, website.

This year’s conference is set to start Super Bowl Sunday, February 5th and continue through Thursday, February 9th at Big Sky Resort in Big Sky, Montana.

  • ‍Concussion Updates will be on Tuesday, February 7th, 2017
  • ‍Ortho Day is Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

The BSATSMC is recognized by the Board of Certification, Inc. to offer continuing education for Certified Athletic Trainers. Up to 20 CEUs may be awarded. Speakers may apply to the Board of Certification for  an additional 10 CEUs for presenting.

10-12 EBP credits are planned for 2017.  In the past, there has been no cost for CEU and EBP credits, however, in 2017 EBP Credits will cost $10 per credit hour.  Continuing Medical Education, CME’s, will cost $100 for physicians and other health related professions that need them. This change was necessary because of the extra time needed to meet the BOC and the ACCME educational standards.

There are no registration fees for attending the meeting. The entire cost of the meeting is paid for by the conference sponsors.  Sponsorship is limited to activities outside of the meeting to comply with CME, CEU and EBP accrediting. 

If you are interested in presenting a the 2017 BSATSMC, please contact Jeffrey Monroe at bsatsmc@gmail.com.  Topics for presentation may vary to whatever professional area is of your interest. This meeting is intended to be a free communication among interested professionals. Most attendees will be Athletic Trainers, Allied Medicine Professionals and Physicians.  Unfortunately there will be no stipends or travel reimbursement given for speakers who attend. 

Poster presentations have been included since 2014 and have been a resounding success. Athletic Trainers who are Poster Presenters will receive an additional 10 CEUs.  Special emphasis is given to original research, especially in the area of concussions.  Printing and production costs for poster presentations will be paid for by the BSATSMC. Those interested in submitting a poster presentation should also contact Jeffrey Monroe at bsatsmc@gmail.com.
