About The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine
The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) is a multi-disciplinary organization of physicians whose members are dedicated to education, research, collaboration and fellowship within the field of Sports Medicine. Founded in 1991, the AMSSM is now comprised of over 1,300 sports medicine physicians whose goal is to provide a link between the rapidly expanding core of knowledge related to sports medicine and its application to patients in a clinical setting.
The majority of AMSSM members are primary care physicians with fellowship training and added qualification in Sports Medicine who then combine their practice of Sports Medicine with their primary specialty, but the AMSSM also includes members who specialize solely in non-surgical sports medicine, serve as full-time team physicians, or specialize in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. By nature of their training and experience, sports medicine physicians are ideally suited to provide comprehensive medical care for athletes, sports teams, or active individuals who are simply looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
