Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Symposium

The Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Symposium (mTBI Symposium) is an annual two-day event that brings together researchers and clinicians to learn about the latest discoveries in and care for brain injury. The first day is dedicated to basic and clinical research, while the second day focuses on clinical care, specifically in rehabilitative services.

Register early to secure your seat for the 2019 event. Students, OHSU employees and OHSU health system partners are eligible for a discount. Contact Kate Stout for more information and to submit poster abstracts.

Four continuing education units may be available from the Oregon Athletic Trainers Society, and for physical therapists/occupational therapists. Certificates will be emailed in a short turnaround. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer Continuing Medical Education units for other specialties.
