The 2021 FMPA Conference will take a critical look at the Multidisciplinary Team;  the Past, Present and Future.  The last 10 years have seen a proliferation of the field of Sports Science and Medicine; for the better?  As each individual discipline strives for recognition amongst a landscape of opinions, how do we create clarity amongst the inevitable chaos? How is it best achieved?  The term interdisciplinary team is frequently used but how does this truly look? More importantly, how does this truly work?  Calling on experts across world leading institutions, a wide-ranging assembly of MDT speakers will discuss best practice, challenges faced and what the future holds for want-to-be world leading performance and medicine departments.

Knowledge is power and strength comes from working together
