Medical supervision of sports events and the role of the team physician are the cornerstones of sports medicine. These activities demand precise professional preparation and organization. This paper discusses the specifics of medical organization in sport, criteria to accept such responsibility, composition of the medical staff, professional code of ethics, materiel and medications necessary for a successful mission, problems related to insurance, and communication and relations with the media. We propose that this will help physicians who commit themselves to the medical supervision of sports events, teams, and national federations.
