  • About AOSSM

    Formed primarily as a forum for education and research, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine has increased its membership from its modest start of less than 100 to more than 3,000 today.

    AOSSM members are orthopaedic surgeons and allied health professionals who demonstrate scientific leadership, involvement and dedication in the daily practice of sports medicine.

    Members must demonstrate continuing active research and/or educational activities in the field of sports medicine, including service as a team physician at any level of competition, health education of athletes, service to local, regional, national and international competitions, and/or the presentation of scientific research papers.

    The unifying interest of the membership is their concern with the effects of exercise and the monitoring of its impact on active individuals of all ages, abilities and levels of fitness. While many members treat high profile athletes who play on professional teams, many devote their practices to helping their community and treating players on the local high school or junior college team.
