The UCL department of Performing Arts Medicine organised another successful PAM DAY on Saturday 15 June at the Institute of Sport, Exercises and Health (ISEH).
Attended by doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and a number of students and professional performers, the PAM DAY offered time for networking and discussions on the health and rehabilitation of performing artists. Talks were scheduled throughout the day by experts in Performance Anxiety, Hypermobility in Dance, Musical Theatre Performer Rehabilitation, Circus Artists’ Injuries and Musicians’ Clinical Assessment.
MSc graduates in Performing Arts Medicine presented original research in Noise Induced Hearing Loss in Singers and Footwear in Dance. Current MSc students gave a practical workshop on Musicians’ Warm-up.
PAM DAY is an annual event hosted at the ISEH where regular lectures of the MSc programme also take place during term time. It is approved by the Division of Surgery and Interventional Science as a Continuous Professional Development course and it attracts 5 UCL Learning Hours. It explores a variety of topics and intends to give participants an understanding of the specialised field of Performing Arts Medicine and an opportunity for everyone to meet and discuss matters regarding career pathways for health practitioners and health promotion for performers.
We are thankful to all who came this year and we are looking forward to our PAM DAY 2020.
