2014 American Medical Society for Sports Medicine Annual Meeting

New Orleans, LA US
April 5, 2014 to April 9, 2014

The AMSSM Annual Meeting provides a valuable source of cutting edge and evidence-based review of medical knowledge to professionals engaged in the treatment active patients.  The Annual Meeting provides a forum for physicians to discuss current and controversial issues in the field of sports medicine. By providing a quality educational experience we plan to foster collegial relationship among dedicated, competent sports medicine physicians who are recognized as experts by their peers.

Primary care sports medicine embodies varied and diverse expertise from general health of active individuals to screening for safe participation and return to activity/sports as well as diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.  The AMSSM is also involved in setting practice standards through collaboration with other governing sports bodies. An example is consensus statements.

Furthermore, the AMSSM fosters and lends a forum to new research and study of sports medicine.  The membership of the AMSSM are heavily involved as educators of sports medicine from fellowships to medical residents, students and educating members in local communities.

The Annual Meeting of the AMSSM is the primary avenue to update both national and international membership in all of these areas.  Through workshops, instructional course lectures, research presentations and plenary sessions up-to-date information and discussion is provided.   The content of the annual meeting is determined by a process which includes:  review of past meeting feedback, membership surveys, the Program Planning Committee, AMSSM leadership as well as feedback from leaders in the field world-wide.
