Abstract: The idea of specialty certification in performing arts medicine (or performing arts healthcare) has been discussed for a long time among professionals in the field. An article by Pascarelli and Bishop published nearly 20 years ago mentioned the perceived need for certification and some of the obstacles to creating it. The Performing Arts Medicine Association (PAMA) took a step in this direction at the 31st Annual Symposium on the Medical Problems of Performing Artists by offering a preconference workshop, "The Essentials of Performing Arts Medicine Course: From Classroom to Stage." This full-day educational session was attended by several dozen performing arts medicine professionals and led by experts from several disciplinary backgrounds in both music and dance. While PAMA has no plan in place currently to offer specialty certification in performing arts medicine, educational offerings such as this one are often part of the requirements to become certified in an interdisciplinary specialty area.
