Motorsport medicine is a lot of fun. There are fast cars, (mostly) good drivers and you get to work with a small group of similarly aligned individuals in a fairly challenging environment. Often it's the social aspect and the things that you learn along the way that keeps you coming back.And medical conferences play on that socialising/networking/learing framework. So thankfully there are a handful of motorsport medicine conferences at various times of the year. Last year I went to my second FIA Medicine in Motorsport Summit and at the begining of this year I was at Trauma and Extrication Management (TEM2015) meeting at Mondello Park in Ireland.
In a bit over a week, the International Council for Motorsport Science are hosting their annual medical conference in partnership with the Performance Racing Industries trade show (PRI2015). It's a North American conference I've heard a lot about but I can't go this year. So I tracked down the conveynor, Dr Dan Marin, and recorded a podcast, asking him about the work of the ICMS and the medical program at the PRI2015 event, which includes a practical day out on the Indianapolis race track (I'm a little bit jealous). You can listen to the podcast here:
