2004-07-17

After its successful premiere in 2002, the 2nd INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS FOR ENDURANCE AND SPORT MEDICINE will take place in cooperation with the 31st real,- BERLIN MARATHON from September 23-25, 2004.

The focus this year will be:
New demands on medicine: The athlete — a special patient

Immobility on the one hand, with its health and socio-political consequences, and sport on the other, which assists one’s individual fitness, represent the current trends in Germany, as well as a challenge for classical curative medicine. Exercise can serve as a primary preventive measure or ancillary therapy for almost all illnesses. (Sport) medicine, together with the institutes of learning, is indispensable for the moderation and transfer of knowledge.

Since 2002, the International Congress for Endurance and Sport Medicine, which is staged by the Department of Sport Medicine of the Humboldt University of Berlin, the Berlin Academy for Sport Medicine, and the real,- BERLIN MARATHON, has successfully put itself to the task of offering a forum for relaying the newest in scientific research and revelations to doctors in a manner in which they can promptly apply the knowledge in their practices. It is this addressed group which is in end effect responsible for passing on this preventive and sport medical content to the general public in a well-informed manner.

Over the course of three days, topics in the areas of cardiology, orthopaedics, and nutritional and sport science will be handled in the form of general lectures and workshops. One highlight will be a look at the Olympic Games from a sport medicine viewpoint by Prof. Wilfried Kindermann of Saarbrücken, as well as at the European Football Championships by Dr. Tim Meyer, also of Saarbrücken.

In lieu of a pending regulation on preventive medicine, there will be a podium discussion on the topic:

"Prevention: Possibilities and Limitations" from the viewpoints of

- the state (Federal Ministry for Health)
- the health system (Prof. Dr. Henke, TU Berlin)
- the health care insurers ( AOK, Continentale)
- Pharmo-Therapy (Prof. Wehling)
- Exercise and Sport Medicine (Prof. Dr. Dickhuth, University of Freiburg,
president of the Deutschen Gesellschaft für Sportmedizin und Prävention (German Society for Sport Medicine and Prevention)) and
- Diagnostics (Technologie-Stiftung Berlin).

Practical seminars, from training plans for selected illnesses to the implementation of spiroergometric examinations, will present the many facets of sport medicine.

The congress is registered for certification with the Ärztekammer Berlin (Berlin Chamber of Doctors) (in 2002: 18 points), as well as for the additional sport medicine qualification (Zusatzqualifikation Sportmedizin) (in 2002: 24 hours in theory and practice).
