ACCME Accreditation

The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) has been awarded Accreditation with Commendation by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®). Accreditation with Commendation is the highest tier available to CME providers and is a benchmark of success for organizations that excel in providing physician education.


The purpose of accreditation is to provide a framework that motivates educators to achieve their full potential. Accredited organizations are responsible for demonstrating that they meet requirements for delivering independent CME that accelerates learning, change, and improvement in healthcare. The ACCME accredits organizations that provide continuing medical education for physicians.


AOSSM provides orthopaedic surgeons and other professionals who deliver comprehensive health services for the care of athletes and active people of all ages and abilities with evidence-based continuing medical education activities that are high-quality, unbiased, up-to-date, learner-driven, and produced in a variety of formats.



AOSSM is a Board of Certification (BOC) Approved Provider and can award continuing education (CE) credit to athletic trainers who participate in our educational activities. The BOC regularly reviews CE courses and activities designed to help athletic trainers advance their knowledge, skills, and abilities. Participation in these educational activities assists athletic trainers in maintaining their BOC certification.
