Ahead of Super Bowl LVIII, medical leaders from the National Football League and Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV, in partnership with UNLV Health, hosted the NFL Health and Safety Super Bowl Medical Summit on Friday, February 9, 2024. The day-long conference was led by top medical experts from the NFL as well as leaders from the Las Vegas medical community.

The Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV is pleased to work in partnership with the NFL to host some of the leading experts in the field of sports medicine. This partnership aligns perfectly with the school’s mission to provide elite level training for not only its medical students but for any practitioner who attends the Super Bowl Medical Summit.

“We’re grateful to have the opportunity to gather with our sports medicine colleagues to discuss the latest research, innovations and practice enhancements as another tremendous NFL season comes to a close,” said NFL Chief Medical Officer Dr. Allen Sills. “We always look forward to the opportunity to share our latest findings from our work, hear from other leaders in the field and dig into these topics that are front-of-mind for physicians, athletic trainers, and other sports medicine providers alike.”

The summit highlighted an ongoing commitment to information sharing, innovation and delivering the highest quality of care to patients made by leaders in sports medicine around the country across all settings. Attendees included physicians and athletic trainers from across the state, as well as Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine residents and medical students. Participants were eligible to obtain a Continuing Medical Education credit for attending the summit or a certificate of attendance for non-physician participants that can count toward elective credit.
