AOSSM offers a wide variety of resources both before, during and after sports medicine fellowship training, including:
The Match has been a great success and we expect participation to continue to grow among programs and participants. Last year, 89% of all of the positions in the Match were filled, and 80% of all programs fully matched. For residents, the Orthopaedic Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Match is attractive since last year 73% of all applicants received their 1st or 2nd choice in programs. Again this year, 96% of ACGME accredited fellowship programs are participating in the Match representing 98% of accredited fellowship positions – 222 positions!
The AOSSM Fellows Exam was developed to assist fellowship programs in identifying strengths and weaknesses in their fellows’ orthopaedic sports medicine clinical and practice management areas. This is a valuable tool for fellowship programs to use during training and strongly associated with preparing for the sub-specialty exam. These exams are designed to be taken without extensive preparation to reflect the status of education and learning within the fellowship year.
The AOSSM Fellowship Online Resource Center is a one-stop shop for all current sports medicine fellows and fellowship directors to access the latest AOSSM resources, including Online Meetings, Online Library, AJSM and Sports Health.
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is a private professional organization responsible for the accreditation of post-MD medical training programs within the United States. Accreditation is accomplished through a peer review process and is based upon established standards and guidelines.
