Welcome letter


    Dear colleagues and friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is a great pleasure to invite all of you to attend the international conference “60 Years of Sports Medicine at the University of Tartu" on November 1st, 2019.


Tartu is a home to the University of Tartu, founded in 1632, where the only Department of Sports Medicine in the former Soviet Union was open during 1959-1996. Therefore, 2019 is a monumental milestone for sports medicine in Estonia as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of sports medicine teaching at the University of Tartu. The graduates of the Department of Sports Medicine are recognized specialists in Baltic States and all over the world.


The conference brings together sports physicians and many other specialists whose interest lies in sports medicine. We believe that the conference will provide a high-quality environment for the presentation of new research and exchange of information between all of the disciplines related to sports medicine. The conference is an excellent opportunity for the reunion of the graduates of the Department of Sports Medicine.



I hope you will enjoy the conference and the following reunion event.



Eve Unt

Head of the Department of Sports Medicine

University of Tartu
