  Screening young athletes for hip shape
  Preventing symptoms in athletes
Session 2
Diagnosis
The developing science to support a diagnosis of FAI syndrome
  Update on the Warwick Agreement on FAI syndrome
  Exactly what are the features of the history?
  What is the performance of clinical examination tests in FAI syndrome, and how exactly should we do them?
  What imaging do we need and when? What about new imaging techniques?
Session 3
Non-surgical treatment
How can we treat FAI syndrome non-surgically? Does it work, and in who?
  Systematic review of non-surgical strategies
  Physio-led rehabilitation – the PHT programme

  Can athletes return to sport after open surgery?
  Managing the overlap between FAI syndrome and dysplasia.
Session 5
Arthroscopic surgery I
What are the principles, and the details, of good arthroscopic surgery? How can evidence guide our surgical technique?
  Setting up to do hip arthroscopy safely
  Are we getting the basics right? Evidence from recent trials suggests not always
