The Ironman® Sports Medicine Conference is a non-profit, accredited annual five-day Continuing Medical Education event for medical professionals with an interest in sports medicine and treating endurance athletes at all levels. The conference is the only authorized Ironman® sanctioned sports medicine conference.


The conference provides up to 24.25 CME hours of AAFP credit for physicians from the fields of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, PM&R and Orthopedics as well as Physical Therapists, Athletic Trainers, Physicians Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Exercise Scientists and others who care for athletes and/or patients who engage in regular athletic activity.

Conference attendees may earn four hours of CME while volunteering in the Ironman Medical Tent on race day. All volunteers are under the direct supervision of the Ironman Conference Faculty. This four-hour “mini-internship” allows volunteers to observe and apply what they learned at the conference while providing much needed medical services to the race competitors.

Thanks to WTC/ Ironman® World Championship, one fully-registered ISMC conference attendee will win a slot in the 2020 Ironman® World Championship. This opportunity  is exclusive to the Ironman Sports Medicine Conference.
